I am an assistant professor of Media Studies at the University of Virginia. Most of my research is about money and other communication technologies. I have published on topics like gender and Diners' Club in mid-century America, the ideological and technological tensions in both bitcoin and the blockchain, advertising and mobile wallets. I am working on a book on past, present, and future of payment technology.

Previously, I was a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research New England and a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. I received a doctorate in Communication from the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California and a masters in Comparative Media Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
