My research focuses on critical approaches to digital media, media literacy, emerging media, media archaeology, and new media. My longitudinal studies on digital cultures, YouTube and populism are recognized and presented globally.
My cultural studies degree at Stony Brook University engages specifically with media studies and a critical analysis of structural hegemony, race, migration, feminism, dataveillance, eco-criticism and platform capitalism.
Most importantly, my activist approach and direct engagement with the community combines media studies with civic engagement and increasing civic voices. I prioritize curricular innovation and consult regularly with secondary and higher education.
If you are interested in research or consultation on digital culture, gen z, YouTube, emergent media or VR/AR/MR, I can be of assistance.
