I study how the digital information we create and share online will be passed down to future generations and how digital systems influence the lifespan of that information. I’m deeply interested in these topics, and in how technology is influencing existing practices related to family, legacy, and ownership.
Outside of my research, I’m an all around Pittsburgh enthusiast, and spend a lot of time exploring our beautiful city. Pittsburgh is a vibrant, dynamic city that I’m proud to call home. I’m also an active climber, and a participant in a number of HCII intramural teams. In the past year I’ve also become interested in food preservation including canning, pickling, and cheesemaking.
