Dr. Dawn Shepherd, PhD

After months of viewing her Twitter handle (@drshephe) and thinking she was already a Dr. (and then wondering why she didn’t spell her last name correctly), we are proud to announce that Dawn Shepherd passed her dissertation defense with flying colors and is now officially Dr. Shepherd.

Dawn’s dissertation is titled “Technologies of Matching: Romantic Matchmaking, Power, and Algorithmic Culture.” Her committee included Steve Wiley, and Susan Miller-Cochran and was co-chaired by Carolyn Miller and Jeremy Packer.

Dawn is a faculty member at Boise St. University, where we’re told all the classrooms are carpeted with artifical blue turf.

We wonder if birds regularly nosedive into the floor in Dawn's classroom.
