Hello! I study computer coding and data-driven work as rhetorical forms of communication. I’m invested in questions like How are coding and data work rhetorical practices?, How do coding and data work perpetuate or create new societal problems?, and How can we help technical professionals find value in a humanities perspective on their practices?
Some of my past research has studied how capitalistic rhetoric has impacted calls for coding as the new mass literacy of our time. Overall, my research, teaching, and community-outreach projects take up a design justice approach to digital communication.
We use the Inuit cultural practice of nalukataq as a key metaphor to present our community-engaged research framework for cultural humility: listening to the caller, setting your feet, pulling equally, staying in sync.
How is Twitter embedded within the U.S.-Mexico border, and how does Twitter reorganize the oppressive conditions perpetuated by the border’s sociopolitical history? We propose a theoretical framework for technical and professional communication to study and understand our role with infrastructure.
