Hi, I’m Emma, welcome to my website.

I’m an instructor and PhD candidate at Virginia Tech, currently based at TU-Darmstadt and the Goethe University in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany. My research is interdisciplinary and spans critical theory, media theory, data studies and the digital humanities. In my dissertation, I posit computation as a force which shifts our conditions for knowledge, examining the use of non-digital methods in research on psychedelic drugs as an intervention in the epistemic power of data technologies. A web-based version of my curriculum vitae is at this link, and this one gives you a downloadable PDF.

I am also a writer and musician; I post a lot of non-academic creative writing and original music here. The earliest content is from 2014.


Behind this link I’ve indexed a lot of recent writing, some published.
My academia.edu homepage has more academic content, including teaching materials.
