Professional Bio

Gabriel Aguilar is a fourth-year PhD student at Penn State University studying rhetoric and technical communication. Born in the border town of Brownsville, TX, Gabe researches the intersections of rhetoric and technology that historically effect the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. His other research interests include Chicanx/Latinx rhetorics, border rhetorics, and feminist rhetorics.

Gabe is also a fellow in the Health Policy Research Program, a 4-year fellowship from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and administered by Johns Hopkins University. As a member of the HPRS, he is receiving financial and network support in an effort to bring his research into the field of Healthy Policy and vice versa. His dissertation "The Case for Humanitarian Technical Communication: Theory, Method, and Praxis," won the HPRS dissertation award in 2022.

Gabe has accepted a tenure-track position in the Technical Writing and Professional Design program at the University of Texas at Arlington. His appointment as assistant professor will begin in Fall 2024.
