I am an Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at the University at Albany, SUNY. I earned my PhD in Rhetoric and Composition at the University of Louisville. I am also a graduate of the MFA program in creative nonfiction at Emerson College.
My research focuses on how communities of activists advocate for each other across differences, especially in LGBTQ+ and racial justice movements. My research and teaching interests include activist public rhetorics; queer, feminist, and critical race studies; digital rhetorics; translingual approaches to writing; and social justice pedagogies.
My work has been recognized through a Gloria Anzaldúa Rhetorician Award from the Conference on College Composition and Communication.
I am the co-editor of the book Crossing Divides: Exploring Translingual Writing Pedagogies and Programs, and my scholarship has recently appeared in Composition Studies and JAC.
