I'm an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at San Jose State University. For AY 2015-16 I'm on research leave at New York University, where I'm a Research Fellow at the 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 social, political, and ethical dimensions. Right now that means I'm spending a lot of time thinking about privacy, big data, and online identity.

I did my PhD in philosophy at Stony Brook University, and before that I studied philosophy and computer science at The George Washington University.

I live in Brooklyn with my partner, our cats Sacco and Simone, and our dog Bette Midler. I blog at The Second Shift: Academic Feminism After Hours.

News of academic-y things I'm up to here.
