I am an Assistant Prof. of Environmental Media in the Communication, Media and Film Department at the University of Calgary.

My current research, recent publications, and conference presentations look at data centers – their social implications and environmental impacts. Lately, I’m focusing more on the intersection of biology and technology as it pertains to data storage.
