Journal of Heat Transfer, and an associate editor of the Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology
As Professor of Practice - Engineering Communications, Dr. Nancy Barr developed a multi-faceted technical communications program in the Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics Department at Michigan Technological University. She delivers embedded communication and teaming instruction to undergraduate students, teaches two graduate engineering communication courses, assists faculty and GTAs in crafting and evaluating assignments that reflect real-world engineering situations. Her current research focuses on gender dynamics in collaborative projects and portfolio assessment practices. The author of three mystery novels and an award-winning short story, Barr has a Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Theory, and Culture, with a focus on Writing Program Administration in STEM. As an IEEE Senior Member, she currently serves as secretary to the IEEE Professional Communication Society Board of Governors and as Campus Representative for the ASEE North Midwest Section. She also serves as Associate Editor for STEM for the Prompt journal and is an active member of the Consortium for Graduate Communication and the National Council of Teachers of English.
