I am a Ph.D. student in the department of human-centered design and engineering at the University of Washington. I do research on instruments, infrastructures, and technical work. My current work centers on research software as an instrument and research software engineering as a craft. More broadly I am interested in how research communities collaborate around code. I have also done work on the emergence of digital labor platforms and the gig economy, and how people work with algorithms. I have published in journals and conferences such as Computer-Supported Cooperative Work; Work, Employment and Society; and the iConference.
