Research overview

I am a social anthropologist of digital culture, business, and politics. I investigate the interface of economic and political power, cultural discourses and practices, and networked communication technologies. These interests coalesce into critical and ethnographic investigations into media industries and media activism.

Based on my ethnographic research into media companies in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, I am presently writing a book about the corporate myths of media "democratization" and internet and television convergence. 

In my present project I am investigating the politics of information infrastructures through ethnographic fieldwork with cloud computing companies, peer-to-peer banks, and "internet freedom" activists.

PhD supervision

I am happy to collaborate with students with any of the following research interests: cultural anthropology, digital culture, internet, television, journalism, social media, convergence, media industries, media activism, indigenous media, media policy, social justice movements, digital money, democracy, start-up culture, culture industries, critical theory, neoliberalism, ethnographic methods, the public sphere, and video and television production.
