Emerging academic researcher and instructor, using computational tools to study the social impact of technology on how we create and consume digital content.
With over two decades working in media production and journalism, I have long been fascinated by how technology shapes how we both tell and share important stories.
As a PhD student at Toronto Metropolitan University, my research centres on using computational social science tools to measure the social impact of digital platforms and technologies, with a particular focus on how algorithms and artificial intelligence shape the journalism industry.
I have a Master’s degree in Communication and Culture from Toronto Metropolitan University and a Bachelor’s degree in Computing and Information Science from the University of Guelph.
While a graduate student at Toronto Metropolitan University, I have contributed to the research work of the Explanatory Journalism Project and the Responsible AI program.
Having worked as an instructor at both George Brown College, Toronto Metropolitan University and Lakehead University (Orillia) —teaching classes in social media, information architecture and web design— I have also gained experience supporting and teaching students and creating captivating coursework.
