I'm an Assistant Professor at Temple University (tenure-track) in the Department of Media Studies and Production (within the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication). 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 data-driven ontology and 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 forms of embodied computing—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.
