Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine
My research seeks to unpack the promises of tech-for-good and the ethical imaginaries and practices of people making and receiving such promises across various contexts.
I have studied tech in labor organizing, humanitarian technology, corporate social responsibility projects in the tech sector, information and communication technology for development, and grassroots uses of apps and social media platforms. My research is published and in conversation with HCI, CSCW, and STS. I'm fortunate to have had my research funded by grants and fellowships from the NSF GRFP, Zonta International, ARCS, and the NSF DDRIG.
