I’ll be joining the faculty at Temple University as Assistant Professor in the Department of Media Studies and Production this fall (within the School of Media and Communication—soon to be renamed the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication).
Currently, I’m a Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Media, Data, and Culture at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and the Decimal Lab. I’m also a Contributor at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, Adviser at H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online, Researcher at the Centre international des études simondoniennes, and Editorial Leader at the Society for the Philosophy of Information.
My research interests are in data ethics and the social impact of emerging technologies. My work currently focuses on the construction and use of applied computational ontologies in scientific research. The objective of my research is to understand the ethical implications of ontology for social organization and then to apply this work by providing new opportunities for social change in policy-making and education.
I maintain an active research agenda and have work published in or forthcoming from International Review of Information Ethics, Big Data & Society, Philosophy & Technology, The SAGE Encyclopedia of the Internet, communication +1, MediaTropes, Communication Booknotes Quarterly, Canadian Journal of Communication, Dialogue: Canadian Philosophical Review, Platform: Journal of Media and Communication, Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy, Deleuze Studies, and Systema. I’ve also provided media outlets with commentary and am available for interviews and consultations.
