My day job is as an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Old Dominion University. I teach courses on cybercrime, race and ethnicity, and research methods. At Old Dominion, I conduct quantitative research on online behavioral patterns and coordinate the university’s cybercrime program. The views expressed here are my own.
I write (and will eventually be uploading audio) to this website as a way to work out ideas about the digital environment. I am concerned about privacy and free speech online. I have a libertarian streak, and I worry about government overreach and surveillance online. I am also interested in how the digital environment can be used by underrepresented groups for jobs, information, and well-being. This site allows me to make these ideas public.
