HISTORIAN, WRITER, SPEAKER
I am a professional researcher of computers and video games. I bring historical, theoretical and feminist methods to the study of media objects and practices, with a special focus on everyday users and obsolete technology.
Institutionally, I am an Assistant Professor of Media and Information Industries in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University.
