Research Interests

literacies, writing, technology, composition pedagogy

In my research, I look at how teachers incorporate digital and non-digital technologies in the course of their planning practices. I’m interested in how literacy educators prepare to teach writing, including the material, contextual, and discursive resources they assemble over time. I'm also interestedin multimodal composing, especially how people use materials, interfaces, and potentials to shape activity and construct meaning.
