I’m a PhD candidate in English with a certificate in Digital Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. My research is at the crossroads of digital media studies and the environmental humanities. Some keywords include: media archaeology, infrastructure, computer security, speculation, affect and aesthetics, biopolitics, media materialism, weather forecasting, nuclear cultures. I’m in the preliminary stages of a dissertation tentatively titled “Atmospheric Media,”1 which investigates how digital media produce and depend on atmospheres in the doubled sense—both gaseous vapors and aesthetic surrounds.
So much hedging! ↩
