Doctoral research: I'm interested in how contemporary writers describe the internet and the experience of being online. What strategies do writers use to make sense of these fast-paced global information systems? How does an individual meaningfully orient themselves amidst this massive scale? How do writers make the metaphors, coinages, and vernaculars of the internet meaningful to their own lives?
