I am an assistant professor of Library and Information Science in the School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh. I hold faculty affiliations in the Telecommunications and Networking program and the Graduate Program for Cultural Studies.

I study the material production and transmission of records created with mobile phones and their archival consequences. My research is concerned with the emergence and standardization of new information objects in networked record keeping systems.
