I'm an Assistant Professor at Temple University in the Department of Media Studies and Production (within the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication) and I serve on the faculties of our Media and Communication Doctoral Program, Cultural Analytics Graduate Certificate Program (coming soon), and Science Studies Network. I'm also a Researcher at the Centre international des études simondoniennes, Editorial Leader at the Society for the Philosophy of Information, and I run the Critical Data Lab.
My work focuses on data-driven ontology and infrastructures that support collaboration in data science. I conduct interviews with data scientists and comparative analyses of digital tools and methods for data sharing. Broadly, these projects fall under the label of critical data studies (find me on Ontolog and GitHub). I also study the social impact of emerging forms of embodied computing—things like wearables, embeddables, ingestibles, and implantables. Check out our FABRIC database (let us know about additions).
I maintain an active research agenda and have work published in or forthcoming from Global Media and Communication, International Review of Information Ethics, Big Data & Society, Philosophy & Technology, Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society, The SAGE Encyclopedia of the Internet, communication +1, Communication Booknotes Quarterly, and the Canadian Journal of Communication, among others. I've provided media commentary and am available for interviews and consultations.
