Overview

Personal Pronouns:
She/Her

I am a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow and the Assistant Director of the Writing and Communication Program at Georgia Tech. My research and teaching incorporate critical race and ethnic studies, antiracist pedagogies and writing across the curriculum. My service at the university involves faculty development work and writing program administration. I completed my PhD in English with a Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities at the University of Miami in summer 2021. Currently, I am teaching an undergraduate writing course titled, "Archiving Atlanta: Race, Technology, Nostalgia, and a Zombie Apocalypse" that is placed at the intersections of writing studies and popular culture studies. Additionally, I am working as a WCP Faculty Fellow in Georgia Tech's Public Interest Technology (PIT) for First-Year Engineers Project. 

I am actively looking forward to collaborating on multimodal research projects that aim to develop student-centered learning and accessible pedagogical practices in higher ed. Please find below a demo of my students' multimodal research projects.
