Research overview

I work at the intersections of science and technology studies, media and cultural studies, and social and cultural theory. I'm mainly interested in the overlaps and entanglements associated wiith network and computational media, with sciences as forms of practice and thought, and with social production of value. A lot of my current work also focuses in invention of data-related methods.

Research Interests

I'm very interested in the lives of data, especially in databases but also in data analysis, modelling and 'analytics.'  I'm looking at changes in the work, productivity and situation of programmers, life scientists, and focusing on the transformations in technique, knowledge and products associated data-related developments. The wider stakes here includes the nature of promise, design, value, speculation, subjectivity and imagination in knowledge economies.
