I’m a PhD candidate in the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin. I study technology and work with an emphasis on how large-scale data and new forms of computation influence the production and communication of knowledge. Recently, I’ve focused on how social media data is used in the marketing industry and on the use of machine learning algorithms in humanities research. My co-authored work on critical design received a Best Paper Honorable Mention at ACM Computer-Human Interaction 2014, and I’ve published in Social Media + Society, ACM Designing Interactive Systems, the Journal of Documentation, and multiple papers in the Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. I also hold a Master of Arts in English Literature from The Ohio State University.
I also develop websites and design and make things.
