Christiana is in her fifth year at Annenberg and studies the ways that network structure impacts communication between individuals and overall group behavior in digital spaces. Her work utilizes rhetoric, social network analysis, and a variety of STS theories such as actor network theory. Her dissertation examines computer coding languages as networked rhetoric. She believes that technologies could provide unique solutions to problems faced by women, people of low socio-economic status, and geographically isolated populations. She is enthusiastic about pedagogical methods and has designed an undergraduate major, created course curriculum, and tutored, graded for, and taught a variety of classes. Before arriving at Annenberg, Christiana moved from a small town in southern West Virginia to California to obtain a bachelor's degree from Pacific Union College. There, she double-majored in Communication and English Literature, with an honors emphasis in philosophy.
