My research interests include project management, trends in professional and technical editing, workplace studies, and technical communication programs and pedagogies. I am currently editing a special issue, “User Experience and Technical Communication: Past, Present, Future,” with Dr. Emma Rose (University of Washington – Tacoma) for the Journal of Technical Writing and Communication. I am also collecting data from editors across several industries for my project “Trends in Professional and Technical Editing.”
