My research interests include engineering communication, gender and teamwork. I am also interested in incorporating social justice themes in engineering communication studies. As the Director of Undergraduate Programs for Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Carnegie Mellon, I have collaborated on communication courses and assignments within the CEE curriculum. I plan to continue to focus my work on writing across the disciplines.
