A Bit About Me

I'm an Assistant Professor of Education and Critical Race Technology Studies. In 2016, I began theorizing a critical race technology theory (CRTT) in education - a framework that exposes the centrality of algorithmic racism in school based technologies. My work is interdisciplinary, and leverages Black studies, women and gender studies, digital humanities (DH), information studies (IS), computer science (CS) and education to examine the socio-technical experiences of Black students. My projects include projects in computer science, artificial intelligence, robotics, engineering and platform technologies (e.g. social media).
