cropped-rsz_1rsz_circle.png I received my PhD in Sociology from Texas A&M University in 2017 with a designated focus in race, media, and culture. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at Susquehanna University and a Research Associate at the Center on Conflict and Development. My research follows two broad streams of inquiry: cultural studies of race, gender, and community in digital spaces and mobile phone and digital technology use in developing countries. I theorize digital media as it converges with issues concerning race / ethnicity, gender, and communal identity. In addition to my domestic research agenda, I conduct research on socio-political conflict, mobile phone use, and digital inequality in the Democratic Republic of Congo. My work can be found in several peer reviewed outlets including Social Sciences, the International Journal of Communication, and Information, Communication & Society. I also serve as Series Associate Editor of Emerald Studies in Media and Communications where I have edited several volumes on digital inequality, global media flows, and new media cultures. My other academic interests include intersectionality, social theory, postmodernism, technology, and embodiment.
