Writer | Researcher
I’m an author and researcher. I did my research training in the Work, Technology, and Organizations PhD program at Stanford University. I also have an MA in Sociology and an MS in Management Science & Engineering. I study and write about how technology and humans are getting along, among other things. I’m largely optimistic about our technological future, but believe, as with any good relationship, that it is important for us to go into it with our eyes wide open. Technology can magnify our humanity, and generate amazing new feats of connection and creativity. There are, however, also perils and pitfalls. Across our personal lives, work lives, friendships, social movements, and government, new technologies, along with our best ideas and our lizard brains, are constantly enthralled in new experiments-on-the-fly with real stakes.
