My research focuses on three related areas of inquiry: digital cultures, production studies, and global media. In short, I study media work within global digital cultures.
My research agenda is rooted in a belief that studying contemporary cultural production from a global perspective helps expand analytical and conceptual perspectives in our field.
I teach several courses at Iowa that prepare students to be better consumers and producers of digital and social media. I also have professional experience as a software trainer, instructional technologist, and video producer.
