I'm a research and policy professional specializing in the social life of data. My work is positioned at the intersection of science and technology studies (STS), quantification studies, and political ecology.
I currently work as a Senior Policy Adviser at the Royal Society, the UK's national academy of science, where I lead work related to cryptography and society, inclusive tech/AI development and tech sustainability.
Previously, I held roles in research consulting and academic research. My doctoral research theorised protected food regions (PDOs, or 'terroir') as visceral political ecologies. You can see a three-minute version of my project proposal here. Prior to this, I investigated the role of soil science in the reification of 'terroir', or the 'taste of place' in a Hungarian wine region.
I worked with Dr Virginia Nazarea in the Ethnoecology and Biodiversity Laboratory, as well as Dr Jennifer Jo Thompson in the Social Sustainability of Agrifood Systems Lab at the University of Georgia.
