I am a communication technology expert with more than 15 years experience in higher education including teaching, program administration, management and research. I am particularly interested in communication issues related teaching and learning with technology, online collaboration, and participation in online communities. My research has been focused on the ways that new media affect our everyday communicative and cultural practices, with an emphasis on discourse structure.
As a former pubic radio professional, I am also interested in new forms of media production such as podcasting and I maintain an ongoing interest in modern science fiction audio drama.
I received my Ph.D. in Communication Studies from The University of Texas at Austin in 2006, and an MA in Media Communications Management from Webster University in 1996.
