Software studies, social movements, visual studies, social and spatial theory, critical GIS
I am a geographer, artist, and computer programmer with research interests in software studies, social movements, visual epistemology, spatial theory, feminist thought, and contemporary philosophy. My academic work describes the role of software in constructing the world through its material entanglement with social, political, and economic systems, while my artwork manipulates these entanglements to produce new forms and experiences. My current projects focus on algorithmic surveillance practices, technologies of policing, and speculative cartography/GIS.
