I am a third year PhD student in rhetoric and writing at the University of Texas at Austin. I am interested in systems of digital identification—smart ID cards, identification numbers, biometrics, and the like—and how they govern access and shape notions of belonging. Other interests include: technical writing, professional communication, infrastructure, and visual rhetorics. 

At UT, I work as an assistant instructor in the Department of Rhetoric and Writing and as a social media coordinator for the Digital Writing and Research Lab. Before beginning my postgraduate studies, I spent more than five years working in brand strategy, corporate communications, and agency marketing. I have special expertise in B2B branding, marketing, and copywriting.

I live with my dog Nancy Kerrigan in Austin, Texas.
