I’m a fourth-year PhD candidate in Composition and Cultural Rhetoric (CCR) at Syracuse University. I have a B.A. in Philosophy (2013) and M.A. in English (2015) from St. Bonaventure University.
My research interests center on questions of (nontraditional) authorship, intertextuality, and play. This informs my dissertation process, which reframes our rhetorical understanding of games in terms of community engagement and circulation across platforms.
Lately, I have taken a particular interest in post-truth rhetoric, fake news, media literacy, algorithmic rhetoric, and the intersection of media sources, which has increasingly informed my teaching.
