I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology at Wesleyan University. Previously I was a Teaching and Learning Collaboratory Fellow at Macaulay Honors College (2016-19) and a Digital Fellow at The Center for the Humanities, CUNY (2014-16). I have taught at Columbia University, New York University and Hunter College. I completed my Ph.D. at the CUNY Graduate Center in 2017.
My research focuses on data systems and digital culture, queer theory and social life, death, dying and the apocalyptic imagination, affect, embodiment, art, science & technology. Check out my recent pieces on digital ephemerality in Media, Culture & Society (“The Digital Ephemeral Turn”) and Real Life (“For the Moment”) and my other publications here. I also organize installation and performance based events, including the two day conference Queer Circuits in Archival Times in the summer of 2016. With Daniel Sander, I guest edited a special issue of Women & Performance inspired by this conference, which is now available.
