Patrick W. Thomas, PhD

Associate Professor of English


Hello, and welcome to my website!  I’m a writing researcher and teacher. I work at the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio, where I direct the undergraduate program in the Department of English.

As a researcher, my interests are many and varied; in brief, I study what, how, and why people write on the Internet. 

As a teacher, my experience is similarly varied, as I teach courses in web writing, literacy studies, style, professional and technical writing, composition theory, writing assessment, community writing, and editing. 

NOTE: I’m currently re-building my site. Please stop back for updates!
