A Krispy Kreme sign that says DougHi, welcome to my professional portfolio. I’m Douglas M. Walls and I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of English at North Carolina State University. I primarily teach in the Masters of Science in Technical Communication program and am core faculty member of the Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media (CRDM) Ph.D. program.

My research interest are in digital rhetorics and user experience (UX)/ Experience Architecture (XA) particularly in social justice contexts. I am currently exploring inclusive design for marginalized communities in public health care information and community outreach.

I am an enthusiast of autumn, wrist watches of all kinds, and my dog Bub.
