Biography

Given my training as a rhetorician, technical writer and intercultural communicator, my research interests somehow combine aspects of all of them. One area of interest is the use of the mass media to secure, maintain and enhance political power; more specifically, I am interested in Venezuelan Presidential discourse. Another interest includes exploring the use of technology to enhance the classroom experience. And last but not least there is my interest in international technical communication—including issues of translation v. localization.
