My work looks at intersections of urban political economy, technology, and socio-spatial difference. Recent publications focus on links between urban restructuring, the computerization of criminal justice, and racialized criminalization in US cities. I also study theories of digital space and urban space. My research uses a mixed-methods approach that integrates critical social theory, discourse analysis, and content analysis.
