Research Interests: security, privacy & surveillance online; theoretical criminology, mass incarceration, inequality, power, and risk.

My primary research interests include: security & surveillance, such as cyber-security, corrections, and theories of social control; inequalities, especially as perpetuated by the criminal justice system; as well as textual and media analysis and the expression of power through texts. My current research projects range in topic from feminism in video game communities, to risk-taking by adolescents on social media.
