I am an Assistant Professor of Emerging Media Studies at the College of Communication at Boston University. My scholarship takes a mixed methods approach that integrates computational methodologies and critical cultural theory to examine mainstreaming of supremacist ideology on the internet focused on race, gender, and religion. As a global, inferential, and multi-method critical computational social scientist, my work on social media and supremacist digital content integrates theory advancement, policy relevancy, and community activism.

I completed my Ph.D. in Communication at Georgia State University, as a presidential fellow in Transcultural Conflict and Violence Initiative (TCV), M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University and B.A. in Near Eastern Studies and Economics at Cornell University. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Communication and Public Policy at Northwestern University, an Assistant Professor of Disinformation Studies at Clemson University, and one of the core faculty of John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s funded Media Forensics Hub.
