Communication across Curriculum (CxC) Studio Coordinator
After being awarded a 2012 LA Board of Regents Grant that funded a CNC Mill and portable 3D scanner, I have played a large role in growing a 3D scanning and digital fabrication culture within the College. I lead and assist grant writing, manage the 3D scanners (Creaform and FARO x330 HDR), and help teach this technology and integrate it into curriculum. Routinely, I collaborate with faculty for assignments and course development, conduct lectures and workshops, jury critiques, participate in assessment committees, manage the communication studio (including budget, staffing, and development of undergraduate and graduate assistants), and tutor and mentor LSU students. I also report to the dean to assess utilization of the studio and progress of the CxC program in the College of Art + Design as well as pedagogical responsibilities for CxC, including articles, conferences, and grants. In addition to my coordinator responsibilities, I serve as a Graduate Faculty Member in the College of Art + Design, developing M.A. and M.F.A student theses and serving on committees and graduate reviews.
