Dr. Karen M. Taylor

Assistant Professor of Communication

I joined the Department of Communication Faculty in 2008, after having lived in six other states and travelled in every single state except for Hawaii.  My Ph.D. is from University of Pittsburgh (with certification in History & Philosophy of Science), my M.A. is from Texas A&M University, and my B.A. is from Tulane University (with a minor in Physics).

My academic interests are primarily in organizational communication.  My research deals with communicating scientific information and the role of communication in knowledge-production. More generally, my interests are pretty eclectic and I like learning new things, so conversations on almost any topic are welcome.
