However, for settlers within the early colonies and citizens of the young republic, the wilderness of the supposed New World not only […]

I am currently working as an independent researcher and writing specialist, although I am an associate of the Centre for Postgraduate Studies at Rhodes University, in South Africa. My current research is focused on knowledge and meaning-making processes in higher education teaching and learning, and how teaching can make the structural, procedural and dispositional knowledges in academic subjects more knowable and accessible to a greater number of students. I was an AW Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Centre for Higher Education Research, Teaching and Learning (CHERTL) at Rhodes University in 2015 and 2016. Prior to that, I was the coordinator of the University of the Western Cape’s Writing Centre, a post I held for 6 years. I have also spent time teaching, tutoring and mentoring undergraduate students, and have extensive experience working with both under- and postgraduate writers in higher education. I author two blogs on writing and research in higher education, one specifically focused on postgraduate writing, and the other more general in nature. When I am not working, I am at home with my two boys and my husband and enjoy reading, creative writing, and surfing.
