Bio

I’m an STSS-y researcher working in information security. Originally from the United Kingdom, I live in the United States and so far have a 100% record of spending substantial amounts of time in countries that collapse into insular, petty-minded fascism.

I’m a member of the Technology Advisory Board of Nonprofit Quarterly, Forwards, rOpenSci, and a variety of small bodies nobody has ever heard of. I spend whatever time I have left over reading books, writing code and trying to make the world a marginally less sucky place. From September 2017 I will be a PhD student at the University of Washington’s Department of Human-Centred Design and Engineering

This site is an eclectic mishmash of writings on the R programming language and various additions to it, leftist politics, research around data science ethics, ethnography, the intersection of human-computer interaction and indigenous studies, Judaism and whatever the hell else I feel like.

My pronouns are they/them, and if you want to contact me: poke me on Twitter, I guess.
