I am an assistant professor of English at Alfaisal University. My research investigates college students’ writing about literature. More broadly, my interests include writing in the disciplines, literary interpretation, applied linguistics, and composition pedagogy. I earned a B.A. in English from Wellesley College, an M.A.T. in Secondary English Education from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in English and Education from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
