I am an Associate Professor of Digital Media at Georgia Tech, with a background in design, computing, and ethnography. My work is focused on helping creative people think critically about the social implications of emerging technologies. Current research interests include critical data studies, digital civics, environmental media, and participatory visualization. I publish in a variety of fields: science, technology, and society; information sciencedesign studies; human-computer interaction. My most recent book, All Data Are Local (MIT Press, Spring 2019), is addressed to a growing audience of creative practitioners who want to work with unfamiliar data both effectively and ethically. I also organize events about how to work creatively with data. Recent examples include Humanities Data VisualizationDigitalSTS and Design and Beautiful Data 1 and 2. Coming soon: Information+ (now in 2021)
