I am a third-year PhD student at UMSI co-advised by Silvia Lindtner and Tiffany Veinot. My current research focuses on the use of social technologies by LGBT people in rural Michigan. I am more broadly interested in the ways in which identity and social systems, particularly sexuality, class, and rurality, affect the creation, transmission, storage, and access of information in social settings.
