About Me
I completed my Ph.D. in Educational Studies at Concordia University. Through my work, I seek to disrupt, destabilize, decenter, and deconstruct what is known in order to then repose, reimagine, reinvent, and reconstruct what is possible. My research lies at the intersection of citizenship education and educational technology, which allows me to explore the relationship between technological evolution and socio-political, as well as cultural change. Specifically, my research program aims at uncovering how socio-political phenomena such as hate, violence, and oppression are manifested and negotiated in online environments.
