What I Do

I'm an assistant professor with the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University.

I study digital technologies as forms of social resistance and endurance. My current research is on the social and political impacts of information and communication technologies in Indigenous communities.

I also advocate for intellectual freedom and social justice, especially in Native American and borderland communities.

Through this project, I collaborate with Jacqueline Wernimont (ASU), Jessica Rajko (ASU), Heather Ross (ASU), Patricia Garcia (U Michigan), and Marika Cifor (UCLA) to discern the phenomenological experiences of quantification through uses of fitness trackers among individuals in the US-Mexico borderlands.
