Research
focus

My applied research focuses on information and communication technology (ICT) related public policies as interventions to support the financial stability and mobility of communities faced with disproportionately high rates of enduring poverty. These communities include racial and ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and female-led households in the United States. The policies I focus on span from anti-poverty (e.g. Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) to regulatory (e.g. net neutrality or the Universal Service Fund) in nature, and include the federal, state, and municipal levels of government. My work is a branch of research in the emergent field of digital inclusion, which refers to efforts to ensure that everyone has the ability to access, use, and create with ICTs.
