I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Central Florida, where I teach courses in the Technical Communication program. My research interests lie at the intersection of scientific and medical rhetoric, genre theory, and digital media. My current project, The Empowerment Paradox: Rhetorics of Lyme Disease and the Future of Chronic Illness, examines arguments about contested health conditions and explores how patients are forced to navigate the digital deluge of online health information. Using rhetorical analysis and qualitative interviews, I show that visual, textual, and multimedia discourses intersect and shape the conditions of possibility for patient empowerment efforts.

I earned my B.A. at University of Maryland (2013) and Ph.D. at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2019).
