I study how to update methods used in computational social science (CSS) in order to address some of their documented ability to perpetrate social, political, and economic harms. My work has been funded by ArtsEngine, the Center for World Performance Studies, the International Institute, Rackham Graduate School, the School of Information, among other institutions.

My current projects are especially interested in (1) what CSS is currently doing to navigate these challenges, and (2) how CSS can learn with and from artistic disciplines' methodological expertise  to navigate these challenges.
