research statement

Driven by a commitment to explore the ways that communities can unexpectedly leverage their resources, my research is located at the intersections of digital technology, public rhetorics, and professional-technical communication. This inquiry has centered on different topics throughout my academic career, exploring the ways that digital tools might bolster social movements and the material effects of such technological developments. I find myself returning consistently to the relationship between the structures that claim to promote opportunity, dialogue, and justice, and those who must navigate those assemblages. Ultimately, I hope that my work may shed light on the structures that are built, the structures we must build ourselves, and the strategies that can be used to navigate them as they shift and change.
