Academic Interests


    I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Media Studies and Film at The New School in New York. From 2006 to 2009 I directed the Graduate Program in Media Studies. My research and teaching address relationships between the forms and materialities of media and the spaces (architectural, urban, conceptual) they create and inhabit. I’ve written about libraries and archives, media companies’ headquarters, place branding, public design projects, urban media art, media acoustics, media infrastructures, and material texts.
