# Hi, I study the material production and transmission of information objects created with mobile ICTs and their archival consequences. My research is concerned with the emergence, standardization, and transmission of new information objects in mobile and social media platforms. Currently, I am researching data literacy, social media metadata, and information infrastructures that support long-term cultural memory. I teach courses that cover topics in information science, including archives, science & technology studies, mobile ICTs, standards and infrastructure.
