Bio

I am a Senior Lecturer in Media and Communication Studies at the Department of Geography, Media and Communication at Karlstad University in Sweden. Before joining Geomedia in November 2020, I held academic positions at University College London, University of the Arts London, and University of Westminster, and a fellowship at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

I research and write about emerging technologies and their users, in particular, mobile and ubiquitous media, location technologies, mobilities, algorithmic profiling, machine learning, and memory. My research is highly interdisciplinary and uses theories and practices from media and communication studies, geography, philosophy, sociology, data science, and computer science. I hold a Ph.D. from the Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), University of Westminster in UK, which has a strong tradition in critical media and communication studies.

I have a strong interest in mobile communications and media, location technologies, location data analytics, geo-profiling, algorithmic bias, and social justice. I am currently writing a book entitled The Politics of Location Tracking and Profiling (under contract with Routledge), which critically analyses the problematic intersection of location technologies and data, machine learning, and geo-profiling.
