Talking & Teaching

How to get me to talk

I do a lot of public outreach and teaching, and am always interested in opportunities to speak or guest lecture about my research or the areas that interest me. Areas of interest and expertise include:

  • Gender and technology;
  • Facial Recognition specifically, and surveillance more broadly;
  • The politics and ethics of data science;
  • Queer experiences with technology, and;
  • Research methods with trans populations

Note that if your talk is outside Seattle then (unless I happen to be in the area) I’m going to be requesting at least travel funding ;). Also please note that I am taking this year off doing talks for a whole range of reasons documented here.
