I publish in the fields of critical data studies, human computer interaction, geography, urban planning, media and design. Much of my scholarly work is in the tradition of design research in which design-based interventions are theoretically informed, conducted in contextual, real world settings and use mixed methods in order to assess impact and iteratively refine the design.
