I study the emergence and development of networked computing systems, based at the UCLA Computer Science Department where I work as co-PI and assistant researcher.  My background is in history of technology and political science, and in my projects you’ll see a lot of collaboration with information studies.

This site is massively under construction during Fall 2014.  My current research projects are available via the sidebar links.

You can reach me via  and Twitter.

A long sentence on what I do: I am Co-PI for a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency social sciences research grant, Affiliated Faculty with the UCLA Digital Humanities Program, Faculty Affiliate with the David Geffen School of Medicine’s History and Social Studies of Medicine program, and Director of the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science’s Kleinrock Center for Internet Studies.
