I am a PhD candidate in Rhetoric, Composition, and Literacy in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am also a 2018-2019 Digital Dissertation Fellow with Carolina Digital Humanities. Before coming to UNC in 2013, I earned a BA in English Literature from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

I specialize in digital rhetoric and public affairs. Broadly conceived, my dissertation analyzes the rhetorical consequences of contemporary digital platforms and services for the internet’s future as a public good.
