I am a scholar, maker, and activist. I hold a PhD in Human Centered Computing from Georgia Tech and am a worker-owner of Sassafras Tech Collective. I design critical information communication technologies (ICTs) with activists and then use that technology as way to understand the relationship between social justice causes and ICTs. The contributions of my work are always two-fold: furthering social justice causes and contributing to greater understandings of these socio-technical systems. I ground my work in deep qualitative and ethnographic investigations that then inform technological design, study, and critical analysis.
