I study and teach writing transfer, networks, and programs using mixed empirical methods. I'm starting my fifth year at Purdue University after eleven years at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois.

Selected scholarship

I have two central research projects. First, a collaborative longitudinal study of writing transfer, with sixteen student and fourteen faculty participants from a regional state comprehensive university. My collaborator Neil Baird and I are writing up our findings as a series of articles:

We have an essay under review and several more in development.

I'm also developing Crow, the Corpus & Repository of Writing, with Shelley Staples, Bill Hart-Davidson, and a team of graduate and undergraduate students from Purdue, Arizona State, and Michigan State University. I'm glad to say we were awarded a $142,000 grant from Humanities Without Walls to support this project. See our recent blog posts for more information.

Other scholarship

I also have more recent work in the collection Florida (Jeff Rice, ed, Parlor 2015) and the forthcoming collection Networked Humanities (Brian McNely, ed, Parlor 2017).
