I am a communication professional and scholar with more than 15 years experience in higher education. My research examines the ways new/social media affect our everyday communicative and cultural practices. My past work has looked at discourse structure and collaboration in computer-mediated settings, participation in online communities, and new forms of media production such as podcasting. I am also interested in online learning and pedagogy, as well as the ways technologies can be used in traditional face-to-face classroom settings.
I received my Ph.D. in Communication Studies from The University of Texas at Austin in 2006. I also have a professional background in public radio and maintain an ongoing interest in modern science fiction audio drama.
