Current research interests: My primary research interests involve the communicative dynamics between leadership, autonomy, creativity, and work. These topics have led to a variety of projects including a study of independent bands in the Austin music scene and another concerning issues of temporal power in an academic medical organization. I am currently working in Dr. Barbour's APRON Lab to investigate the datafication and automation of healthcare.
Mentor: Dr. Joshua Barbour
Projected graduation: Spring 2023
