I study rhetoric and argumentation, especially in legal and professional communication. My communication research focuses on rhetorical and argumentation theory in context and practice, using text-analytic, computational, and cognitive methods. I attempt to draw explicit connections between legal philosophy or jurisprudence, argumentation theory, and empirical practice. My other research interests include law and rhetoric, digital media law, writing pedagogy, and research methods, especially as they relate to digital writing and digital humanities.
I’m at work on two book projects at various stages of completion, and I have an active research agenda supporting other projects related to my interests. My CV provides an up-to-date summary.
