I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at the University of Minnesota, where I study crime, law, punishment, technology and media. My research investigates the growth and effects of criminal histories and crime data online. My dissertation is a mixed methods study of "digital crime reporting" in criminal history databases, blogs, mugshot websites, and social media platforms. I am also a sociology instructor, a dissertation fellow, a contributor to The Society Pages, and a research consultant for non-profits. You can download my cv here.
