I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program at the North Carolina State University. My passion for the intersections of technology and communication and curiosity about its impact on society provoked the recent research on topics including, but not limited to: Information design and social justice concerns in developing conversational agents (Technical Communication, MAI Feminism); User research through open authoring and data analytics (SIGDOC, DRC, CPTSC); Technology mediation in humanities classrooms (Communication Design Quarterly); Data analysis to detect citational politics (Technical Communication); Visual rhetoric for big data and other digital humanities projects (Kairos).
