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 Unmaking Gender, which proposes a re-articulation of media archaeology that includes feminist, intersectional and queer perspectives and focuses on genealogies of making and crafting. 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.
