I am on faculty in the Communication Department at Santa Clara University in Silicon Valley. My research is focused on communication of teams and organizations that work in high-pressure situations, such as tactical police units, fire crews, and sports teams. Some of my recent research is aimed at understanding organizational training for lifesaving critical teams (e.g., wildland fire crews, SWAT teams). I have also conducted research projects on various topics within communication and sport and, and I am the co-editor of Sports and Identity: News Agendas in Communication, published by Routledge.
