Hello! I’m a writer, teacher, researcher, and disability advocate and a faculty member in the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH.
My research is driven by one central question: “Why is it so hard to communicate about disability?” In my writing I explore this question through rhetorical studies and disability studies, and in my teaching I engage students with this question by teaching interdisciplinary research projects about accessibility. I am driven to change the conversation about accessibility–from an uncomfortable obligation to something that everyone confidently and gladly participates in.
You can find examples of my published work and a description of my current book project under Research.
