I received my PhD in Communication Studies from Concordia University in 2008. My MA was in Educational Technology from Concordia University. My BA was in English (Film and Communication) from McGill University.
My research analyzes intersections of the cultures of digital and social media, commodification and surveillance. Grounded in critical theories of biopolitics and the political economy of communication, my published work takes up questions of privacy, digital property, personal information, digital labour, and intelligence uses of digital and social media. I am currently working on a research project that examines the potentials and pitfalls of alternative social media, as well as a new collaborative project involving researching digital literacy amongst young adults.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in areas relating to digital and social media, social movements, privacy, surveillance, digital labour, digital media and journalism, and critical theory involving biopolitics and the political economy of communication.
