I’m a doctoral student in the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford, and a researcher interested in content moderation, platform governance and regulation, and the theory and practice of digital media manipulation/disinformation. I’m currently working with the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford and the Max Bell School of Public Policy at McGill University. I’m also affiliated with Oxford’s Centre for Technology and Global Affairs, the Project on Internet and Democracy at Stanford, and in the past have held research positions at the Oxford Internet Institute, the European Studies Centre at St. Antony’s College, and the Liu Institute for Global Issues at the University of British Columbia.
My work brings together perspectives from political science and international relations with a range of interdisciplinary approaches to digital media research and platform studies to better understand dynamics of power, regulation, and contestation around contemporary technology policy issues. My academic articles have been published in Information, Communication & Society, Policy & Internet, and Internet Policy Review. I also enjoy writing for magazines and public audiences: I contribute to the Los Angeles Review of Books and have written on tech and politics for Wired UK, the Washington Post, Foreign Affairs, and other popular outlets.
