I conduct social computing research focused on envisioning and designing trans technologies, social media content moderation and marginalized populations, and changing identities on social media during life transitions. Much of my research has focused on transgender identities and experiences online and with social technologies, and my research goal is to impact technological inclusion of marginalized users. I am a recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award.
