I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Science at CU Boulder. I joined the faculty at CU after finishing a Ph.D. in the department of Informatics at UC Irvine. I love cat pics and gummy candies, and have never met a method I didn't like.
I'm a digital ethnographer studying human experiences on social platforms. I currently work on memorialization and postmortem interactions. My past work looked at real name policies and kindness on discussion boards about charity campaigns. I earned an MA in Communication, Culture, and Technology at Georgetown, and a BA in Cultural Anthropology at Kansas State University. I like memes, mountains, and making ice cream.
