Profile

I am a first year MA student in Digital Rhetoric and Professional Writing. My research interests are general but cover a variety of digital media. I have a general interest in online community behavior, fandom studies, and avatar use. More specifically, I want to explore the body of research surrounding the psychology of avatar use from a humanities perspective for the purposes of establishing best practices for UX designers.

I also play Dungeons and Dragons.
