I am a Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Utah. I am also an affiliated faculty member in the Environmental Humanities program. My research and teaching expertise lies in environmental communication,  social movements, and Indigenous studies. As a rhetorical theorist and critic, I have examined a variety of historical and contemporary controversies, such as nuclear colonization in the American West, energy policy, climate change, Native American mascots, and dominant spatial practices. I am also interested in rhetorical methods, particularly the use of ethnography, oral history, interviewing and other participatory approaches in the practice of rhetorical criticism.
