Research Overview

My research addresses digital infrastructures and data-centric technologies in particular contexts of practice, including smart-city politics and dissent as well as ecological governance and waste. My work is often multi-sited and encompasses Turkey, Hong Kong, and Europe. Recently, I edited a special issue entitled “Digital infrastructure, liminality and world-making via Asia,” published with the International Journal of Communication. I co-edited a book (with Gladys Pak Lei Chong) entitled Communication Innovation and Digital Technology: A Critique of the New in a Multipolar World, published by Michigan State University Press.
