I work on the politics of digitization, the uncertainty of big data and the epistemology of algorithms. I am currently writing a book for MIT Press on the politics of mass digitization. Currently, I am is affiliated with two major research projects at the University of Copenhagen. The first, Uncertain Archives, is a project that seeks to deploy and develop traditional and poststructuralist archival theories to big data environments, focusing in particular on questions of uncertainty, error, vulnerability and unknowns. The second, The Past’s Future, examines the role of cultural memory institutions in the digital age, paying special attention to issues related to colonialism, gender and new digital infrastructures.
