On July 1st 2017, I’ll be joining the faculty at Temple University as Assistant Professor in the Department of Media Studies and Production (within the School of Media and Communication—soon to be renamed the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication).

Currently, I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Media, Data, and Culture at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and the Decimal Lab. I'm also a Contributor at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, Adviser at H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online, Researcher at the Centre international des études simondoniennes, and Editorial Leader at the Society for the Philosophy of Information.

My work currently focuses on cyberinfrastructures that support collaboration in data science. I conduct ethnographic interviews with data scientists and comparative analyses of digital tools and methods for data sharing. Broadly, these projects fall under the heading of critical data studies. I also study the social impact of emerging embodied technologies—things like wearables, embeddables, ingestibles, and implantables.

I maintain an active research agenda and have work published in or forthcoming from International Review of Information Ethics, Big Data & Society, Philosophy & Technology, The SAGE Encyclopedia of the Internet, communication +1, MediaTropes, Communication Booknotes QuarterlyCanadian Journal of Communication, Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical ReviewPlatform: Journal of Media and Communication, Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy, Deleuze Studies, and Systema. I've also provided media outlets with commentary and am available for interviews and consultations.
