I am an Assistant Professor of Digital Writing and Rhetoric in the English Department at the University of Virginia. I earned my Ph.D. with a concentration in "Composition, Literacy, Pedagogy, and Rhetoric" from the University of Pittsburgh. My research and teaching interests include multimodal composition, sound studies, pedagogy, digital rhetoric, disability studies, sensory rhetorics, gender and women's studies, music, and pop culture. In addition to coediting a "Sonic Rhetorics" issue of Harlot, I have published scholarship in College English, Composition Studies, PeithoCurrents in Electronic Literacy, Sounding Out!, and Provoke! Digital Sound Studies. My forthcoming book, Sounding Composition: Multimodal Pedagogies for Embodied Listening, proposes an expansive approach to teaching with sound in the composition classroom.
