Joined 28 October 2013

I am a faculty member at the University of California, Los Angeles in the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media. I hold a PhD from the Media Arts and Practice program at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. I am also a member of FemTechNet. Before UCLA, I taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and in the School of Media Studies at The New School. I sometimes use Wikipedia in the classroom and am a member of the FemTechNet Wikipedia Committee. Last year, I became interested in including some Wikidata exercises as well. I am just starting to explore Wikidata and have so far only had one student consider the project in the classroom.
