I’m on the faculty at the School of Communication and Information at Rutgers University in New Brunswick NJ, and currently serve as Director of the Information Technology and Informatics Program. I teach courses in social networks, relational analytics, and Web technologies, and I conduct research on the role of information technology in our social, civic, and professional lives.
I earned a Ph.D. in Information Studies from Drexel University after earning degrees from the University of Delaware and Georgetown University. My professional background includes Web design and development, information security engineering, and cyber-incident monitoring and response management. I am currently working on a public interest technology project to support coordinated consumer activism.
In my free time I manage my dog’s Instagram account.
