I work in the Biology Academic Success Center at University of California, Davis. I focus on higher education and am specifically concerned with closing the gap in retention and graduation by better supporting students from underrepresented groups in STEM fields.

 

In my recent postdoctoral position in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University, I focused on curriculum development and teaching related to the intersection of new technologies, work practices, and organizations. As an Engaged Cornell Faculty Fellow, I designed and launched, together with Professors Stephen Hilgartner and Malte Ziewitz, a project-based undergraduate course, the Data Science & Society Lab.

 

My previous research interests have included emerging data work practices and the invisible labor of the data society; standards and standardization; team dynamics and group decision-making; the changing landscape of human expertise in relation to machine learning and artificial intelligence; data subjectivity and governance; and how all of the above fit into explanations for technology's tendency to (re)produce social inequalities.
