I am usually involved in 2-3 writing projects at any given time. The size of these projects varies from books to book chapters to journal articles, to "professional" documents like committee reports. Below is a brief description of my writing and publishing interests as well as a list of my published works and conference presentations.
My research and publication interests evolve, but I am generally interested in the following topics. The order of these interests also changes, depending on a particular project to which I am dedicating my attention at any given time.
- Writing Across the Curriculum
- Professional Writing (broadly defined, includes but is not limited to technical writing)
- Digital and Visual Rhetorics
- Online Learning, Teaching, and Work
- Composition Pedagogy
