I’m an expert in the global phenomenon of digital activism.
I conduct research and gives talks and trainings around the world on how citizens use digital media to bring about social and political change. I’m particularly interested in strategy and how to make activism more effective, which informs both my practical work and my scholarship.
Previously, I was Associate Director of the Digital Activism Research Project at the University of Washington, which I co-founded in 2012. I was also editor of the edited volume Digital Activism Decoded, which was published in 2010. On the practice side, I was named New Media Operations Manager for President Obama’s first national campaign in 2008. I was then Executive Director of DigiActive, another collaborative project that I co-founded, from 2008 to 2010. I’ve lived in a number of countries, including Morocco, India, Ghana, and Chile, and currently live in the city of Seattle, where I am a graduate student and National Science Foundation fellow in the MA/PhD program in communication at the University of Washington.
