Assistant Professor, Temple University
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, and Science, Technology, and Society Network. I also sit on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Responsible Technology and the Executive Editorial Board of Philosophy & Technology. My work focuses on the social implications of data science with specific interests in semantic computing (things like metadata, web schemas, knowledge graphs, applied ontologies) and embodied computing (things like wearables, embeddables, ingestibles, implantables). I conduct interviews with engineers and users, archival research, and comparative analyses of digital tools and methods for data sharing. I maintain an active research agenda and have work published in New Media & Society, Communication Theory, Global Media and Communication, Big Data & Society, Philosophy & Technology, Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society, Journal of Communication Pedagogy, and Online Information Review, among others. I've provided media commentary and am available for interviews and consultations.
