Education & Degrees

PhD, Purdue University


My current research focuses on understanding and improving literacy practices in high school, college and the workplace through a focus on transfer and vertical curricula. With Sharon James McGee, I received a $25,000 grant from CCC to study writing in high schools and colleges across the U.S. Our initial results were published in the September 2010 issue of College Composition and Communication. Another strand of my research focuses on the use of experience sampling methods to understand and improve literacy practices in both traditional and online educational settings.
