I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at Princeton University, and hold a JD from Indiana University Maurer School of Law. I research how law and technology interact to regulate behavior, with special emphasis on legal, organizational, and technological aspects of surveillance and monitoring.
I am affiliated with Princeton’s Program in Law and Public Affairs, Center for the Study of Social Organization, Center for Information Technology Policy, and Center for Human Values, as well as NYU Law’s Privacy Research Group. I have collaborated with the Project for Public Spaces and Intel’s Interaction and Experience Research Lab. Prior to my graduate work, I was a law clerk in the U.S. Federal Courts.
- I’ll be presenting some new work on reconceptualizing the “end user” at Theorizing the Web in April. In June, I’ll workshop a new paper about surveillance and resistance at the Privacy Law Scholars Conference.
- My paper “Relational Big Data,” which explores how data practices are changing our interpersonal relationships in a range of domains, is viewable at the Stanford Law Review Online.
- I wrote a piece on data-driven dating for the IAPP’s Privacy Perspectives blog.
- My paper “Driving Regulation: Using Topic Models to Examine Political Contention in the U.S. Trucking Industry,” a collaboration with Michael Franklin, is available at Social Science Computer Review (paywall though).
