I'm an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at San Jose State University. Before coming to SJSU I was a postdoctoral research fellow at NYU's Information Law Institute, a member of the Institute's Privacy Research Group, and a visiting scholar in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication.
I work in philosophy of technology, with a focus on its normative (social/political/ethical) dimensions. Right now that means I'm spending a lot of time thinking about privacy, big data, and online identity.
