I have a PhD in Communication, with specialized training in the Ethnography of Communication and speech codes theory. Past research projects include studying intercultural service communication on an online, voice-enabled language learning platform and analyzing the appropriateness and effectiveness of Starbucks’ customer service protocols at cafes in Berlin, Germany. I am interested in research and pedagogy treating cultural communication, service communication, service learning, and civic engagement.
