New Faculty Introduction - Kristine Zlatkovic

January 11, 2024

Kristine Zlatkovic joined Northwestern’s Cook Family Writing Program as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the fall of 2023. Prior to joining, Kristine worked in Armenia in the business world and earned her PhD in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Learning Technologies from the University of Florida. In Armenia, she collaborated with small business and international organizations, observing a significant gap in communication between small companies and other entities. She assisted these companies in developing skills for constructing effective communication strategies. 

Using her experience, she is currently teaching English 282: Writing and Speaking in Business. Her research interests center on investigating an individual's ability to perceive and comprehend data-driven information to make effective decisions. She is also exploring COVID-19 data visualization, demonstrating data infographics that communicate data stories either verbally or visually. 

When asked what her biggest piece of advice to succeed was, Kristine stated, “I believe that seeking and incorporating feedback into our work is relevant across all courses and professions, and particularly in writing courses…Therefore, my advice is to consistently seek feedback, using it to revise and edit your writing.”
