I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Culture & Media at Eugene Lang College, The New School, and current Director of the Code as a Liberal Art program.

My research looks at mesh networks, wireless digital technologies, and other media infrastructures like ham and citizens’ band radio. My teaching is centered around critical computer science in a liberal arts context, critical making, and 20th century media history. I mostly teach hybrid theory/practice courses while striving to break down the theory/practice binary.
