Hi, that’s me.
I’m a PhD student in the Computer Science department at Stanford University, specifically studying Human-Computer Interaction, working with Michael Bernstein.
I study digitally mediated communities of workers. That can mean workers on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk; people that drive for Uber & Lyft; or even YouTube & Twitch streamers who have made a living of it. Check my blog for more up–to–date info.
I earned my B.A. in Anthropology & B.S. in Informatics, specializing in Human–Computer Interaction, both from UC Irvine in 2014. I wrote an honors thesis on the culture of Quantified Self while I worked under Tom Boellstorff.
