  • Research


I teach graduate courses at FIMS called “Information Ethics” and “Managing and Working in Information Organizations.”  I've also supervised numerous graduate student independent studies of topics including artificial intelligence, indigenous archives, open access, and more.

My research explores sociotechnical transformation, copyright law and innovative deviance, and the co-evolution of technology, social practice, and law, policy, and ethics. Current areas of research include: right to repair; tech ed; participatory policymaking; and scholarly communications/open access.
