About Me

I’m a PhD student and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Michigan School of Information. My primary research interests lie at the intersections of critical disability studies, feminist science and technology studies, and computer-supported cooperative work. Broadly, I’m interested in supporting, through qualitative, community-based research, solutions to academic ableism. My current work looks at how disabled people and their communities leverage online platforms to redress perceived methodological, ethical, and ideological problems with research on disability. Adjacent to my research, I work to address disability-related issues at the University of Michigan through my involvement with and/or leadership of various boards, committees, and initiatives on disability and diversity. My other areas of experience include automated systems for detecting and responding to online-harassment, experimental social psychology, and Section 508 compliance.
