I’m an assistant professor in the Technical Communication and Rhetoric Program at Texas Tech University. My research interests include transnational feminism, public rhetoric, digital media, disability, and activism. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Kansas. Prior to joining the faculty at TTU, I spent four years as an assistant professor of Rhetoric and Composition at the American University of Beirut.

While this website is dedicated to my academic experience and interests, I consider restful, creative, and community-based activities a complementary part of my life that facilitate and enrich my scholarly work. While everything I do doesn’t need to be in service of my job, I share these here as a gentle reminder that we are more than our work. When I’m not working, my hobbies include photography (especially nature photography), baking, and gardening. Less frequently, I love to SCUBA dive when I am not landlocked. Finally, I enjoy working with activist and community groups in ways that are not directly tied to my research.
