In my multi-stakeholder work, with research, activism, policy, and education, I am committed to exploring humane futures for our digital conditions. Recognising the profound instability and uncertainty of the evolving long-tail of the digital turn, my scholarship is an invitation to examine, critique, and make interventions to frame the digital questions as expressions of aesthetics and cultures.

My current research projects build on
Misinformation and fake news,
Human-Centred Artificial Inteligence prototyping,
Artificial Intelligence ethics,
Narrative Change for Collective Action,
the future of platformisation in Asia, and
Creating a Feminist Internet.

I also work closely with arts and culture universities and organisations, looking at questions of digital cultures through the lens of information overload, anthropocene debates, and human-technology infrastructure.

I orient my work towards:
Researching at the intersection of Feminist, Humanist, and Technologist frameworks,
Examining infrastructures of future justice, collectives of social organisation,
Politics of subjective care-making,
Creating multiple communities of stakeholders,
Identifying digital problems as human problems,
Developing capacity and create conditions for collective agency.
