Elle’s master’s thesis was an action research project applying translingualism to a predominantly white composition classroom. Her thesis focused on making translingualism accessible to new teachers of composition. Elle studies the intersection between technical communication and mental health. She is curious about how technical communicators can consider both efficiency and invisible disabilities like mental illness when writing emails and feedback.
