Research Areas

Academic Labor and Institutional Ethnography, Material Feminisms, WPA, Community Engagement, FYC, Graduate Writing


My research centers around examinations of institutions and their workings, specifically the labor and discursive practices that shape our material conditions. I frequently engage in qualitative research methods to explore topics related to my interests in academic labor: WPA, adjunct and graduate student. I also like to engage with work in writing centers and WAC/WID. My scholarly interests stem from my deeper interests in nature, culture and place.
