I have a background in studying digital cultures, media theory and the intersection of society and technology. These days I spend much of my research time either...
- Building software tools to extract new and interesting datasets, and custom analysis tools to explore them.
- Studying illicit and extremist online cultures.
You can read more about my research as it happens via the blog.
If I'm not doing any of the above I like to spend my time with Sim/strategy games, watching kids films with my kids, and reading cosmic horror because ultimately reality is a vast indifferent force to which humans mean nothing.
I also like rabbits.
