Interests:

My research focuses on digital inequalities, digital media policy, and the role of media advocacy networks and media activism in shaping digital inclusion and media democracy in the U.S. and Latin America. My work also promotes engaged scholarship that builds capacities and enables dialogue between scholars, user communities, practitioners, and policy-makers to create inclusive solutions to digital and communicative disparities in contemporary society.

I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on media industries, media and public policy, internet governance, and technology and social inequalities. Through my teaching, I advance digital policy literacy that emphasizes critical understanding of the political economy of media, media governance and the policy-making processes, and politics of technological infrastructures, empowering students to be informed consumers, active citizens, and innovative scholars and creators of media.
