Bio

I am a Digital Pedagogy Fellow with the OpenLab, as well as a doctoral student at the CUNY Graduate Center and an adjunct at Queens College, CUNY and the New School. My research interests lie at the intersections housing and community development, precarity and political possibility, and using digital tools and art to manipulate the textures of environment in ways that contribute to consciousness-raising and political action. I am currently working on a digital project with students in East New York entitled ‘Walking in My Shoes’, and I encourage you to check it out: http://walkinginmyshoes.nyc
