Teaching

Eventually I will update this section with my pedagogical strategy and course syllabi. In the meantime, I teach courses with titles like Algorithms and Protocols in Cyberspace, Computers and Society, Introduction to Science and Technology Studies, and Cyberspace and National Security.

I teach for the Stevens Institute of Technology’s Science and Technology Studies Program; previously I taught for UCLA Digital Humanities.
