Postdoctoral researcher
Online community, online social interaction


My research focuses on the effects of new communication technologies on human sociality, as well as questions of design for such technologies. Lately I've explored the themes of community and affinity online, embodied knowledge in digital interaction, and life writing. I am highly interested in traditional music and dance as well as choral music, and the hobbyist communities within these fields. I engage in participatory research with an activist agenda, aiming to produce positive change through my activities as a researcher.
