Policy Press, 2016

I am a digital sociologist, ethnographer, and lecturer in the department of sociology at the University of Edinburgh and Programme Director of the MSc in Digital Society. I’m currently at work on a research project that examines the possibilities for solidarity in a digital economy, conducting interviews among Deliveroo riders in Scotland. I am particularly interested in the notion of “resilience” and the ways in which everyday working people navigate shifting economies and technological terrains. I’m also interested in new and emerging digital research methods and research ethics in digital scholarship. Additionally, I work on issues of digital labor in higher education.

Before coming to Edinburgh, I was a lecturer in Division of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at The City College of New York, where I developed and ran the City Lab, a digital collaboration that brought faculty together to develop and highlight digital resources and support for writing, research, communication.
