About Me

As a humanist in a technological university, I believe in a user-centered approach to understanding technology. My field of technical communication allows me an interdisciplinary perspective for research and problem solving, which I have explored in areas such as technology transfer and outcomes assessment. I am committed to challenging my graduate students who, in turn, inspire me.
