The base of my research surrounds a persistent curiosity in the nuances of language and systems of communication.  I’m particularly interested in writing and compositing: where does writing happen?  What does writing look like in those environments? Why and how do writers write in environments inside and outside of the classroom? And how does writing and composing in one environment affect writing and composing in another environment?


I can split my research into four major headings: writing assessment, multimodal composing, leadership, and my participation in digital communities. Each heading categorizes my research questions and scholarship; however, each heading is not mutually exclusive, but overlaps with one another to generate interesting questions.
