I'm a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research (Social Media Collective), a Visiting Professor at the MIT Center for Civic Media, a Senior Fellow at the Information Law Institute at NYU, and an Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales (Journalism and Media Research Centre).
I research how people engage with networked technologies, and analyse the political, cultural, legal, philosophical and policy-making implications. I've done interview-based studies in Australia, India and the US, in big cities and in very small towns. I'm interested in how networked data becomes part of our understanding of knowledge, privacy, democracy, intimacy and subjectivity. My first book 'Adult Themes' was through Pan Macmillan, and I'm currently working on a new book about the politics of Big Data.
