I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at M.I.T.
My current book manuscript, “Code Work: Hacking Across the Techno-Borderlands,” examines the political economy of knowledge work and manifestations of “hacking” between the U.S. and Mexico.
I completed my Ph.D. in Anthropology with an M.A. in Folklore at U.C. Berkeley and I hold a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from M.I.T.
My research has been funded by the School for Advanced Research, The Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, Social Science Research Council, American Council of Learned Societies, Ford Foundation, U.C.-Mexus, and U.C. Berkeley Institute for the Study of Societal Issues.
