I'm a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Systems at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), with a PhD in Information Science from Drexel University College of Computing and Informatics where I studied internet privacy and anonymity.

My work focuses on providing safe and ethical technologies and internet access for vulnerable communities. In addition to advancing more critical theories that take into account those most vulnerable among us, I also theorize about the impact of structural inequalities and new types of data relations on our identities and shifting norms around surveillance and privacy.
