Scholar, artist, and writer, working across the fields of performance, media studies, and philosophy.
Current research: Informed by decolonial and feminist thought and practice, my current research follows several intersecting threads: media epistemologies and mechanisms of knowledge, affect, and value production in the age of “post-truth” and big data; more just and sustainable alternatives to toxic capitalist models and mindsets as well as aesthetic practices that can help us imagine and enact such alternatives. I lead the Data Fluencies Theatre Project, which is a part of the Mellon-funded Data Fluencies Project based out of the Digital Democracies Institute at Simon Fraser University. I am the author of Malicious Deceivers: Thinking Machine and Performative Objects (Stanford University Press, August 2023).
Education: PhD in Theatre and Performance Studies; MA in Philosophy; BA in Modern Culture & Media and Theatre Arts & Performance Studies (magna cum laude; Phi Beta Kappa), Brown University.
Teaching: Assistant Professor of Social and Cultural Inquiry, Marlboro Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies, Emerson College.
