Technical Communication Teacher, Writer, and Researcher

Elena, a white woman with dark curly hair, smiles at the camera. She is wearing a black jacket and a purple and green scarf. There is a brick wall behind her and a floral patterned couch.

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Composition and Rhetoric program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My teaching and research is broadly focused on understanding and interrogating the values, norms, and discourses in technical and scientific communities. I was recently awarded the Big Rhetorical Podcast's Emerging Scholar Award, the Association of Teacher of Technical Writing's (ATTW) Amplification Award, and the ATTW Graduate Research Award. 

Beginning in Fall 2023, I will be a lecturer in Writing, Rhetoric, and Professional Communication at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
