I am an Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and human Development. My recent work focuses on the intersections of race, digital media, and racial justice activism. I recently wrote Racial Formation, Inequality & the Political Economy of Web Traffic, in the journal Information, Communication & Society, and I co-authored, with Deen Freelon and Meredith Clark, the recent report Beyond the Hashtags: Ferguson, #BlackLivesMatter, and the Online Struggle for Offline Justice, published by the Center for Media & Social Impact, and supported by the Spencer Foundation. I am currently working on the book Black Software: The Internet & Racial Justice, From the AfroNet to Black Lives Matter. I also founded the Center for Critical Race & Digital Studies to promote innovative work at the intersections of race and new media technologies. You can read more about my work here.
