File Dec 29, 9 44 54 AM¡Hola! I am an associate professor of rhetoric and writing studies at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). I am also associate dean of the Graduate School at UTEP. Teaching and mentoring graduate students is the best part of my job, but I also love the research and community-based work I get to do.

I work on interdisciplinary and collaborative projects in the following areas:

  • risk communication (health, medicine, education, sustainability)
  • user experience, user-centered design
  • participatory action research
  • art-based and visual methods
  • intercultural and multilingual rhetorics
  • organizational communication

I invite you to browse my site and suggest possible partnerships or consulting opportunities! I can be reached at
