I use ethnomethodology and conversation analysis to research aesthetics, technology, and social interaction.
I am a postdoc at Tufts bridging psychology and computer science. I develop cross-disciplinary methods and open access conversational data to find new ways to study how personal taste and subjective judgments are produced in everyday conversation.
