I am an Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University, where I am also the Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Diversity at NYU’s Steinhardt School. My recent work focuses on the intersections of race, digital media, and racial justice activism. I recently wrote Racial Formation, Inequality & the Political Economy of Web Traffic, in the journal Information, Communication & Society, and I co-authored, with Deen Freelon and Meredith Clark, the recent report Beyond the Hashtags: Ferguson, #BlackLivesMatter, and the Online Struggle for Offline Justice, published by the Center for Media & Social Impact, and supported by the Spencer Foundation. I am currently working on a book Black Software: The Internet & Racial Justice, From the AfroNet to Black Lives Matter, forthcoming from Oxford University Press.
