Hello, Mastodon! I am a researcher who studies digital cultures, political expression and media industries.

I'm currently at the University of Michigan. In the past, I've worked at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, a media startup in Bangalore and a couple of ad agencies.

And oh, +1 for federated free software. -1000 for bizarre commercial content moderation.

@arbitist Welcome to Mastodon. I got my MSI at UM's School of Information back in '01.

@Steve Thank you! I'm good friends with many folks at the School of Information. Some really interesting work happening there right now!
