Expertise Areas: My scholarship and teaching are at the intersection of new media theory, science and technology studies, gender studies, and critical criminology. I investigate gendered norms of privacy, the criminalization of girls, the relationship between surveillance technologies and sexuality, and the porous boundary between law and mass media. By bringing gender and sexuality studies to social media, I develop new ways of studying and responding to the challenges of understanding privacy, consent, and harm in digitally mediated social interactions.
