Professional Bio

Research interests: Rhetoric and composition, rhetorical theory, rhetoric of science, science and health communication, visual rhetoric, ideology, genre.

I am a first-year Master's student writing about primarily rhetoric of science issues (including scientific and public health controversies, genres in scientific writing, and science translation), as well as rhetoric and composition theory and practice writ large. Currently, I am especially interested in the way scientists articulate their research experiences in extra-institutional contexts (such as memoir) to reshape cultural understandings of scientific pursuits and their relationships to policy and action.
