PhD Candidate – School of Journalism & Communication
University of Oregon

I am the Julie and Rocky Dixon Doctoral Fellow in Graduate Innovation at Intel Labs, and a PhD Candidate in Communication & Society/Media Studies at the University of Oregon. My research and teaching focus on gender, science and technology, and postcolonial sonic culture/s. I am currently writing a manuscript entitled Standpoint Acoustemology and/as Technology in Gibraltar: Mass Media Technologies and the Sciences that Made Gibraltarian Men British. This historical ethnography examines the ways in which Gibraltarian men listen to silence, radio, and news, and the ways in which colonial administrators and scientists used emerging media technologies in the 1940′s to structure Gibraltarian men’s “standpoint acoustemology.” I have published research on masculinity and emerging media technologies in Gibraltar, muzak and post-nationalist identity in Gozo, expertise and misogyny on Wikipedia, and the somatic dimensions of “the political” in the Toronto Zombie Walks. I have also co-authored articles on ontological complicity and journalistic coverage of suicide-mass shootings, the legacies of anti-Semitic technologies in World of Warcraft, and debates around definitions of “open-access” publishing. My work has been supported by research and training grants from the Social Science Research Council,  the National Science Foundation, the University of Oregon, and Brandeis University. In my spare summer time, I am a gigging jazz bassist, composer, and arranger.
