My work focuses on the intersection of housing and media technologies, specifically looking at home security technologies and neighborhood/resident-based social media platforms. I examine how American suburbia has been co-produced with security technologies and the expansion of Neighborhood Watch programs, alongside cultural shifts related to the home, the nuclear family, and labor conditions. I have written about the affectual dimensions of fear and security, and the role of resident social media platforms influencing local electoral politics and housing legislation. I am interested in how the home and private property came to be the cornerstone of wealth accumulation, and the conditions of financialization which restructured the economy around this principle.
