My research investigates the ways in which data, policy and technology interact within the criminal legal system. My work seeks to make theoretical and practical interventions in order to empower and embolden communities to engage with records, data and information. Through records, we have the potential to understand and interrogate the ways in which individuals and communities are represented, the ways in which identity becomes calcified through complex socio-technical systems and the ways in which communities can speak back to official narratives. To this end, I have developed three major areas of research: (1) archival studies (2) shifting understandings of expertise and evidence and representation co-constituted through the introduction of new technologies within the criminal legal system and pre-existing policy (3) the role of new media and technologies produce emergent embodied policing practices. In each of these areas, my information studies research is grounded in my training in both the social sciences and the humanities and is informed by my academic background in gender and media studies.
