I began teaching while earning my MA at the University of Florida more than a decade ago. I teach communication and storytelling tactics for the digital and social age, and my instruction is informed by my research (and vice versa). As an instructor at the University of Texas, I combined my research and professional experience to prepare students for careers in digital communication by incorporating lessons on data visualization, web site design, personal branding, and social media ethics into all my courses. I’ve also given guest lectures on computational analysis in several graduate courses.
