Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Communication Studies from Concordia University in 2008. My MA was in Educational Technology from Concordia University. My BA was in English (Film and Communication) from McGill University. I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Ryerson University from 2008-2009.

My research analyzes intersections of the cultures of digital and social media, commodification and surveillance. Grounded in critical theories of biopolitics and the political economy of communication, my published work takes up questions of privacy, digital property, personal information, and digital labour. In the last years my research has also taken up the promotion of digital literacy and the development of privacy education.
