I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Michigan School of Information. I am advised by Silvia Lindtner and Tiffany Veinot, am a member of the Tech. Culture. Matters. Research Collective, and co-convene the Queer Science & Technology Studies Workshop. My research uses ethnographic and participatory design methods to understand how people use information and communication technologies for community and culture in the rural Midwestern United States.
