I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at Princeton University, and have 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 social aspects of surveillance and monitoring.
In fall 2014, I’ll be a postdoctoral associate at New York University School of Law’s Information Law Institute and NYU’s Department of Media, Culture, and Communication. I’ll also be a fellow at the Data and Society Research Institute.
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 wrote an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times about the economics of trucker fatigue, and visited SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking radio to talk about it.
- In June, I workshopped a new paper about surveillance and resistance at the Privacy Law Scholars Conference.
- I presented a short talk on reconceptualizing the “end user” at Theorizing the Web in April, through a case study of meth-proof pseudoephedrine. You can see the slides from my talk here.
- 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).
