Doctoral Candidate in Communication, University of Illinois at Chicago

I am a communication and STS scholar whose work is at the various intersections of technology, democracy, and capitalism, and often uses a racial and social justice lens. My dissertation examines the design practices and policies of some Big Tech companies in order to explore paths to democratize technology through external and internal policy change. My overarching research goal is to democratize technology, its design and deployment, in hopes of producing more just and responsible technology, including its attendant policies and practices, in ways that make technology more inclusive.
