I completed my PhD in Anthropology at Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada. For my doctoral research I explored the making of computer scientists as gendered subjects in Singapore. That is, how are computer scientists constituted as social and technical persons through undergraduate computer science education. My research explores the performance and silences of gender in relation to computing; transnational flows of computing students, professors, curriculums, and practices; and the local and national context of computing in Singapore.
My master's thesis was entitled "Living with music: An ethnography of sessions in St. John's, Newfoundland." It explores issues of selfhood and meaning developed through the performance of traditional Irish (and) Newfoundland music, including assessments of musicianship and debates over "Irishness" and "Newfoundlandness."
I have also worked as a research assistant for the On the Move Partnership conducting qualitative data analysis and research on the employment related geographic mobility in the construction sector in Newfoundland.
