I am the Julie and Rocky Dixon Fellow in Graduate Innovation at Intel Labs, and a PhD Candidate in Media Studies at the University of Oregon. My research and teaching focus on gender, sound technologies, and postcolonial media cultures. I am currently writing a manuscript entitled Listening and/as Technology in British Gibraltar: Masculinity, Mass Media Technologies, and the Somatic Politics of Structural Imperialism. This historical ethnography examines the post-World War II emergence of listening as a cultural technology for the maintenance and operationalization of colonial gender, race, and class antagonisms, and thus colonial domination. I have published research on masculinity and urban noise, colonial space and linguistic domination, and the somatic dimensions of political protest. My dissertation research has been supported by research and training grants from the Social Science Research Council, the National Science Foundation, and the University of Oregon. In my spare summer time, I am a gigging jazz bassist, composer, and arranger.
