Personal profile

Research and teaching information

My research is positioned at the intersection of human computer interaction, information sciences, sociology and communication, largely focusing on the topics of privacy, big data, interpersonal communication, social networks, the role of technology in organizational practice and in coping with disruptions. I am interested in how people relate to and manage information about themselves and others as they negotiate the tensions ever-present in their personal relationships. In my research I apply a relational lens to socio-technical practices as a way to reconsider notions of privacy and data in everyday life.
