I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Digital Democracies Institute in the School of Communication at Simon Fraser University. I received my PhD from Department of Media Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, with a focus on Media Research and Practice. My research centers on issues related to algorithmic culture, gender studies, and the role of communication in democracy.
I am currently working on a book project, titled Remaking in the Revolution: Platforms, Precarious Labor and Feminist Design, which interrogates the problem of opacity and inequality in modern technology through examining practices that involve reuse, through recycled materials or upcycle practices and which intersect with contemporary digital culture through platforms and the gig economy. I also have several other active projects on algorithmic publics, public/private divides on zoom, and infrastructure as gender as well as the From Hate to Agonism project for the DDI.
During my doctorate I was a curator the Media Archaeology Lab, and a research fellow at the Center for Media, Religion and Culture. I have also participated in the McLuhan Center residency program at the University of Toronto and the HASTAC scholars. I served as an instructor and teaching assistant for the College for Media, Communication and Information and the Program for Writing and Rhetoric.
