I am a historian of digital media, studying the ways people have imagined, developed, and used digital images over the past seventy years. My current book is titled Image Objects, and it offers a material history of early computer graphics and visual simulation told through a set of five technical objects that structure the production and circulation of all digital images today. I also work on queer and marginalized figures in the history of computing, as well as contemporary art & technology and digital visual culture.
I’m an Assistant Professor of Digital Media and Visual Culture at Stony Brook University, SUNY where I teach across the Program in Art History & Criticism and the Department of Cultural Studies & Comparative Literature. I received my PhD from New York University’s Department of Media, Culture, and Communication.
