I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Old Dominion University* in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice. I identify as a digital sociologist, and I explore the social dynamics of the digital environment. I have two main areas of research:
- Racial differences in the uses of technology, including the use of Twitter and mobile phones by black Americans
- Crime and deviance online, including the use of darknets, Twitter usage by marginalized or stigmatized groups, and cyberbullying
I am currently the Program Coordinator and Faculty Advisor, for Old Dominion University’s Interdisciplinary Studies Cybercrime Major.
