Education

University of Florida
Ph.D. in English, Degree expected 2018
Dissertation: “Mobilizing Digital Rhetorics: Emerging Modalities of Location-Based Writing”
Committee: Sidney I. Dobrin (Chair), Laurie Gries, and Gregory L. Ulmer

My current project delineates a methodology for creating location-based writing projects with mobile technologies. By designing mobile experiences alongside the existing rhetorics of a location, I claim, digital writers can more adequately employ mobile technologies as platforms for public writing and catalysts for social change.
