Hello! I am an Assistant Professor of Media and Technology Studies in Clemson University’s Department of Communication.
My work explores how media technologies and popular culture are valued by individuals and institutions as part of broader fabrics of lived experience. I combine cultural studies frameworks, interpretive analysis, and critical theory to trace the cultural politics and articulations of a variety of objects, practices, and ideas.
I am currently working on a book manuscript, tentatively titled Mediating Habits: Wearable Technologies and the Battle for Everyday Life. It explores how a variety of institutions have come to value wearable technologies as a means to purportedly learn about the everyday lives of populations. This book is based on my doctoral dissertation. You can find an abstract of that dissertation here
