Research interests

My current research projects use theoretical frameworks and empirical methods to investigate the social and literary implications of textual technologies, commercial and community applications of digital storytelling, and social perceptions of artificial intelligence.

Past research projects have focused on medieval manuscripts and text-based products of 1960s/70s American countercultures.

I am always looking to collaborate on research projects with those studying human-technology interaction, AI ethics, digital storytelling, reader response, and unconventional methods of text production and dissemination.
