Research Areas

Sonic Rhetoric, Embodiment, Memoir, Digital Humanities, Oral History, Cultural Rhetorics


I'm primarily doing work in sonic rhetoric and feminist ways of making. I wonder about ethical sound design practices and how many assumptions are made when editing recorded sound/voice. I'm also interested in soundscapes and listening practices, especially as it is tied to culture.
