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. I’m writing a dissertation titled “Atmospheric Media: Computation and the Environmental Imagination,” which explores how we imagine computation in terms of physical and cultural atmospheres. Some of my other research interests include: weather forecasting, speculative fiction, nuclear cultures, digital humanities, cybersecurity, media archaeology, biopolitics, and software emulation. My writing has appeared in Amodern and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
On this corner of the Internet, you can see some of my work, check out my CV, take a look at the courses I teach, or read some blog posts. Though if you’d rather look at a picture of my cat, I couldn’t blame you.
