I study the political and social dimensions of Internet technologies: how social forces impact the design and operation of online technologies, and how those technologies in turn impact society. Specifically, I study Internet addressing, naming, routing, and security.

I am Assistant Professor of Science and Technology Studies at the Stevens Institute of Technology; previously I was a researcher with the UCLA Computer Science Department. Currently, I am also a contractor for Google, the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute (USC/ISI) Postel Center, and ICANN.
