Director, Writing Program
Associate Professor, Department of English & Creative Writing
Affiliated Faculty, Program in Digital Musics
I research across a variety of disciplines, including digital studies, philosophy, mathematics, music, and literature. My teaching focuses on digital technologies and culture and includes forays into composition, post-structuralist theory, music, and literature. As a teacher, my chief aim is to encourage students to think critically, a skill that transfers to every domain of human activity.
