# 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 and standardization of new information objects in networked recordkeeping systems. Currently, I am researching data infrastructures and digital preservation contexts that support long term cultural memory. I teach courses that cover topics in information science, archival science, systems and tool design, STS, mobile ICTs, standards and infrastructures.

In autumn of 2016, I will join the faculty of the iSchool at the University of Texas at Austin.
