I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Michigan School of Information and will be joining Michigan State University’s Department of Media & Information as an Assistant Professor in August 2020. I am advised by Silvia Lindtner and Tiffany Veinot and am a member of the Tech. Culture. Matters. Research Collective. My research uses ethnographic and participatory design methods to understand how people use information and communication technologies for community formation and economic development in the rural Midwestern United States.
