Currently, I am a Macaulay Instructional Technology Fellow at Brooklyn College. I completed my Ph.D. in Sociology at the CUNY Graduate Center in September 2017. My research focuses on digital culture, queerness, affect, embodiment, art, science & technology.
From 2014-2016 I was a Digital Fellow at The Center for the Humanities. With major support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, I organized a variety of events and projects related to the public humanities and archival practice, including the two day conference Queer Circuits in Archival Times: Experimentation and Critique of Networked Data. I’m currently guest editing a special issue of Women & Performance titled Queer Circuits in Archival Times: Performance, Networked Data, Digital Culture.
Since 2010 I taught a variety of courses at Hunter College, New York University and Columbia, both as a Teaching Fellow and as Adjunct Instructor. I also spent a year as a Writing Fellow at Borough of Manhattan Community College in 2013-2014.
I am a long-time organizer of installation and performance based events.
