Right now I'm completing my dissertation: a qualitative study of the issue of re-learning how to use the body in society after experiencing traumatic bodily injury. The project comprises an inductive ethnographic study of a spinal cord injury rehabilitation facility and the doctors, staff, and patients who inhabit it. The phenomenon under study is the post-injury body — its normative construction, its attendant (normative) recovery regimen, its identity politics, etc. I'm also conducting a large-N statistical study of student learning outcomes of blogging relative to traditional reflection assignments.
As for my time before Michigan: In 2008-09 I conducted research on Japanese university corporatization as a Fulbright Fellow at Hiroshima University. The following year I worked as the assistant director of international curriculum at a private school in rural Japan. Prior to my time abroad, I spent a summer as a research assistant at a diversity consulting firm, wrote a thesis on organizational distinctiveness among elite liberal arts colleges, and worked as a video game tester at Electronic Arts, Inc.
