I am a PhD candidate in communication at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California. Most of my work is on money and other regimes of value and/as communication technologies. I am the Wallis Annenberg Chair in Communication, Technology and Society Fellow to Manuel Castells. I am also a student affiliate of the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing and a member of the Future of Money Research Collaborative. In 2009, I completed a masters in Comparative Media Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My thesis was on "fake" luxury fashion. My first name is actually Deja, and my middle name is Elana, but most people call me Lana.
