My current research investigates the 2021 “Sewell Report” published by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities from a digital sociology of knowledge perspective. More generally, I am interested in meaning-making and the various roles knowledge plays in social life – both online and offline – and draw from feminist and critical theory to explore the politics of knowledge. 

Alongside the DPhil, I also work as a Research Assistant on the Creative Algorithmic Intelligence project – a collaboration between the OII and the Machine Learning Research Group – and am an associate member of the Centre for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology.

My background is in Sociology and Women’s Studies. 

I’m always interested in exchanging with others working on directly or tangentially related questions – just drop me a line!
