I am a postdoctoral fellow with the Moore/Sloan Foundation Data Science Environment grant working as a data science ethnographer. I hold a Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Washington and an M.A. in Anthropology from Columbia University. My research focuses on the social and organizational dimensions of data-intensive transformations in arenas such as scientific research, healthcare, global development, design and construction, and warfare.
Using an ethnographic approach I explore the challenges and opportunities for communication and collaboration during times of technological change. I work with communities to bridge communication gaps and develop value-informed and adaptive organizational practice.
