My research and teaching interests revolve around media aesthetics, media poetics, and multimodal literacy. I teach Film Studies, Media & Society, Documentary Studies, Visual Rhetoric, Philosophy of Language, Oral Communication, and Understanding Media.
My current research focuses on network ecologies, media aesthetics, and contemporary military visuality. My monograph project "Surface to Surface: War, Aesthetics & the Screen," investigates the entanglement of war and media technologies through an array of screen artifacts drawn from weapons systems, cinema, and media art.
