I've taught Composition Studies here at SF State for the last 12 years and have taught college writing for 20 (!). I'm excited to share the interdisciplinary nature of this field with you; to hear your experiences about learning and writing; and to build an engaged community around social justice-oriented learning. I teach undergraduate writing courses, as well as graduate courses in composition, literacy studies, and pedagogy. 

My scholarship focuses on writing/learning transfer, hybrid forms of the essay which promote writers’ rhetorical and stylistic awareness, pedagogies for graduate-level writing instruction, and open-access publishing. As a researcher, I am most proud of my work co-founding and serving as Senior Editor of the journal Literacy in Composition Studies. I have co-authored/co-edited two books: Informed Choices: A Guide for Teachers of College Writing and Literacy and Pedagogy in an Age of Misinformation and Disinformation. My work has also appeared in College English, Enculturation, and several edited collections.
