I am a digital sociologist, ethnographer, and lecturer in the department of sociology at the University of Edinburgh and Programme Director of the MSc in Digital Society. I’m currently at work on a research project that examines the possibilities for solidarity in a digital economy, conducting interviews among Deliveroo riders in Scotland. I am particularly interested in the notion of ‘resilience’ and the ways in which everyday working people navigate shifting economies and technological terrains. I’m also interested in new and emerging digital research methods and research ethics in digital scholarship. Additionally, I work on issues of digital labor in higher education.
