ABOUT

I have over a decade of experience working at the intersection of tech, labor and platform accountability. My current projects examine histories of resistance and organizing in the tech industry, positioning today's wave of tech worker organizing in a long trajectory of labor and social movements, and critically examine the political economy of technology companies. 

I received my doctoral degree in 2018 from the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California. I’ve published my work in journals including New Media & Society, the International Journal of Communication, Policy & Internet and Business and Society, and and my research has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, PBS, CBS and Motherboard, among others.
