Originally from Manchester, England, I find myself in Fort Collins, Colorado, via Hong Kong, Denver, and Washington DC.

As a current PhD candidate at Colorado State University, my research interests lie in rhetorical theory and criticism, with a particular focus on Hong Kong and its complex relationship with mainland China. My research program is guided by the question of how rhetorical strategies communicate particular versions of democracy. More specifically, as part of this overarching question, I analyze how the rhetorical strategies chosen by rhetors are consistent with the types of democracy they are envisioning and how these various conceptions of democracy and thus rhetorical strategies change according to factors such as national identity, cultural history, and urban landscape.
