    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My interests include theory (critical, social, and cultural); philosophies of hospitality; ethics, technology and artificial intelligence; posthumanism; embodied computing; digital memorialization; biometrics; media and cultural studies; visual culture; intersectional feminism; pedagogy.

    My research draws on critical theories of hospitality, and concerns the role of digital and artificial intelligence in everyday life. I am interested in the convergence of cultural products and digital anxiety, and the proliferation of popular entertainment that leverages artificial intelligence in the service of forms of both promising and problematic hospitality. Related to this, I study wearable technologies and embodied computing, human-computer interaction, and the work of technological interfaces to manage processes of loss and grieving.
