Social and mobile media are transforming everyday life for diverse people and communities, often in surprising ways. Yet communication technologies are also the products of the people and places that produce them, and reflect particular ways of understanding the world. As an anthropologist of emerging media technologies, I study how culture shapes technology and how technology shapes culture. I have conducted scholarly research in Berlin, Amsterdam, Silicon Valley, and elsewhere on how users connect at local, national, and transnational levels on social and mobile media platforms, and how their connections are reshaping everyday experiences of place.
Currently, you can find me at Implosion Labs, an ethnographic research group, where I work on projects related to technology & ethics, design & society, and more. In 2019, I started teaching at NYU Tandon’s STS program, as an adjunct instructor. I am also finalizing a scholarly book on emerging media, space and place, and transnational connection in late 2000s Berlin.
