My scholarly research engages with digital rhetoric, user experience, data analytics, and inclusive design to understand audiences and develop content to not only meet their needs, but also to persuade them and enhance their knowledge. By drawing from existing research frameworks in communication and media fields, and closely inspecting the role of human and non-human elements, I critically analyze situations and participants capable of bringing a change.
