Hello, I’m Katie.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Communication Studies at Northeastern University. I received my PhD and MA from the Department of Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My areas of specialization are rhetoric, science/technology studies, and media studies. I enjoy working in communication and media as it allows me to collaborate with students and professionals from a variety of interests and forms of expertise.
I’m a native of Austin, Texas, and have a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and English from Texas A&M University. It was at A&M where I developed an appreciation for rhetoric as a method to ask big questions while staying grounded in the situated nature of communication.
In my free time, I enjoy making cocktails, admiring native plants and birds, and the films of Hayao Miyazaki and Wes Anderson.
