I'm a doctoral candidate (ABD) and Annenberg Fellow in communication at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism.

My research is concerned with technology, memory, and archives, and asks questions about how our conceptions of the past are shaped by technological change. I take a longitudinal perspective when thinking about digital technologies, investigating their afterlives, prehistories, and unexpected modes of erasure and persistence.

My dissertation project–‘Sunsetting: Platform afterlives and the making of digital memory infrastructure’–examines the process of social media closure and content deletion in order to ask about the future of cultural memory.
