Bio

I am a Lecturer (UK equivalent of Assistant Professor) in Digital Media & Society based at one of the top interdisciplinary research centres at University College London (UCL), UCL Knowledge Lab, at the Department of Culture, Communication & Media. I lead the MA Digital Media: Critical Studies programme and the Mobile Media and Place module.

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) 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.
