Hello, I’m Katie.
I am currently a a doctoral candidate in Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My areas of specialization are rhetoric, science/technology studies, and media studies.
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 discourse.
In my free time, I enjoy working in my garden, admiring native plants and birds around Champaign-Urbana, and the films of Hayao Miyazaki and Wes Anderson.
