Research Interest


My interests include technology, work, economy, expertise and its instrumentalization for political purposes, interviewing and discourse analysis. Most recently, I've been researching utopian thought and politics among industry workers and core developers in the cryptocurrency blockchain community. Before joining Columbia, I pursued an MA in Sociology from The New School for Social Research, where I studied with Rachel Sherman and Koray Çaliskan.
