I serve as EBIO’s Advisor for Writing Instruction. Ever since I studied rhetoric in graduate school, I’ve been analyzing scientists’ writing, and researching the ways scientists’ writing changes, and is changed by, the social and political contexts in which science operates. In EBIO, I teach writing classes for undergraduate science students, coaching them to write like scientists, but also to see how writing is an essential part of scientific inquiry. I also serve as EBIO’s Internship Coordinator, and dutifully encourage EBIO majors to seek internships and apply what they learn in their science classes to settings away from their classrooms.
