Currently, she is the 2023-2024 Artist-in-Residence and Visiting Lecturer at the Interdisciplinary Ceramic Research Center (ICRC) at the University of Kansas.

Outside of the studio, Rose is an organizer, editor, and writer for the Ceramic Materials Atlas, a collaborative storytelling and environmental humanities project linking global industry, environmental ethics, and contemporary ceramics. For her contributions to the Ceramic Materials Atlas, she has been awarded the 2023 inaugural Environmental Sustainability Fellowship from the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). The Ceramic Materials Atlas has also received funding from the Center for Craft as well as from the School for Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University.
Rose’s ceramic work is currently on view at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, California, as well as at the Jingdezhen International Ceramic Art Biennale, where it has received a New Talent Award. She is a 2023 graduate of the Ceramics MFA program at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Prior to ceramics, Rose completed an MFA in Literary Translation from the University of Iowa. Past translation projects focused on Latin American literature through an ecocritical lens.
