[Research] [Teaching & Advising] [Contact] [CV]


I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University with a graduate field membership in Information Science. I study the changing role of governance and regulation in, of, and through digitally networked environments – the dynamics at work, the values at stake, the design options at hand.

My work has been supported by an NSF Career Award, a McCloy Fellowship, a PGP Corporation Scholarship, and grants from the Economic and Social Research Council, the Foundation for the Sociology of Health & Illness, the German Academic Exchange Service, and the NSF.

At Cornell, I direct the Digital Due Process Clinic. I am also a member of the Algorithms, Big Data, & Inequality project, the Artificial Intelligence, Policy, and Practice (AIPP) group, and a Faculty Fellow at the Milstein Program for Technology & Humanity.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at New York University's Department of Media, Culture, and Communication and Information Law Institute. I also worked as a junior researcher at the Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research. I hold a D.Phil. from the University of Oxford, an M.P.A. from Harvard University, and a First State Exam in Law from the University of Hamburg. In my previous life, I was a radio reporter, copywriter, and one of the team building Free Cakes for Kids UK.
