I received my PhD in English and Digital Media Studies from the University of Waterloo. I have published peer-review work on the topics of disability, digital media, critical making, and intermedial performance. My academic articles have appeared in Technoculture, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal for technology studies, International Journal of Performance Art and Digital Media, International Journal of Inclusive Education, and the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies. I am a current member of the editorial board of Technoculture.
Working at the intersection of disability studies, digital media studies and critical making, my research attends to the impact of digital media technologies on contemporary society and culture, particularly the lived experiences of persons with disabilities.
My current research project explores the relationship between digital technologies that employ artificial intelligence (AI) and the use of predictive analytics in healthcare. Drawing on critical insights from Science and Technology Studies (STS), I will examine the effects of mobile health (mHealth) technologies on the politics and practice of care in an era defined by the ubiquity of smartphones and digital networks.
