I research automation technologies with an emphasis on the changing nature of work in several industries, including urban transport, warehouse robotics, and digital microlabor.
Currently, I am the Andrew W. Mellon Sawyer Seminar Postdoctoral Fellow on the topic of “Information Ecosystems: Creating Data (and Absence) From the Quantitative to the Digital Age” at the University of Pittsburgh.
At Virginia Tech, I was involved in Data in Social Context (DiSC), a new academic program at the intersection of humanities inquiry, social science methods, computational thinking, and data analysis. In the DiSC program, I developed course syllabi, taught classes, and co-directed a GTA workshop.
I serve as Editor Emeritus for SPECTRA - The Social, Political, Ethical, and Cultural Theory Archives.
