My research interests focus on the history, theory, and politics of software, more particularly on the role of algorithms in social processes and the production of knowledge. Part of that is working with and building digital methods.
I have worked as a Web programmer on various projects and I'm currently writing a book on the history and cultural significance of information processing.
