I study digital writing in the disciplines, using genre theory and qualitative research methods to look at how researchers use digital media and tools to communicate. My goal is to produce thick data to understand digital academic writing practices related to born-digital journal publication. My interests include writing in the disciplines, digital writing and literacies, rhetoric of science, and writing program administration, with those interests stemming in part from my time teaching undergraduates about disciplinary writing and research. I am currently conducting fieldwork with two teams of scholars developing scholarship for native digital publication.
