How are we to understand the production of knowledge and knowers in the digital age? What social and political implications does this production have on urban imaginaries, human figuration, and democracy?
My research and teaching interests center on theorizing civic tech, digital archives, spatial analysis, and epistemic justice through critical theories including, but not limited to, feminist data science, posthumanism, and care theory. Currently, I lead and manage a story map and immersion tour research project with youth and a local non-profit aimed at collecting youth's experiences in Nashville for the purposes of civic action. For my dissertation, I follow a group of civic hackers as they set out to make Nashville more inclusive and democratic and study how their methods for doing so emerge in response to various socio-technical relationships.
