hello-

I’m a PhD candidate (expected graduation May 2021) in the Department of Sociology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. I research the intersections of political & civic action, digital technologies, race, and network capitalism. My work draws from several subfields:

  • Science & Technology Studies: technopolitics; infrastructure studies; sociotechnical imaginaries
  • Digital sociology: race & the internet; digital ethnography
  • Political sociology: civic & political action; nongovernmental organizations & volunteerism; the internet & democracy
  • Pragmatic sociology: critique & justification

This site lists some of my past and current projects, CV, and course syllabi.
