I am a cultural historian and media archaeologist 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.
Currently, I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing in the Department of Media, Culture and Communication at New York University.
