My work lies at intersections of urban theory, racial capitalism, and science and technology studies. Recent publications explore the relations between urban restructuring, mass criminalization, and digital criminal justice technologies. I also study theories of digital and urban space. My research uses a mixed-methods approach that integrates critical social theory, discourse analysis, and content analysis.
