Teaching: I teach courses in the graduate program in Library and Information Science. My current courses include the foundations course, “Managing and Working in Information Organizations,” and the elective, “Information Ethics.”

Research: My research explores the co-evolution of technology, social practice, and law and policy and, in particular, processes of sociotechnical transformation. Current areas of interest include: participatory policymaking on social media, crowd-civic systems, the power and politics of algorithms, scholarly communications, open access, and knowledge infrastructure development.
