Publicists for Dust: The Modern World in a Trillion Particles
I am a writer and researcher based in London, UK.
I studied Social Anthropology at the LSE and a Masters in ‘Modernity, Space and Place’ (Geography) at UCL. My graduate thesis ‘Dust: Disturbing the Domestic’ explored dust as a medium of the domestic uncanny, and as an imaginative framework to create disruptive and radical interpretations of lived space. In 2016, following a journey to the parched desert hinterland of Los Angeles, I developed this idea into the email newsletter Disturbances, followed by a programme for BBC Radio 4 ‘Four Thought’.
Previously I've written for the Guardian on ‘Big Tech’ and its impacts on our contemporary world, and my 2018 essay ‘Post-Authenticity and the Ironic Truths of Meme Culture’ has been published in the anthology ‘Post-Memes: Seizing the Memes of Production’ (Punctum Books, 2019).
I'm interested in modernity and late capitalism – exploring how grand twentieth century narratives of progress come to clash with messier contemporary realities..
Professionally I have worked for the last fifteen years as a media and technology researcher. and digital communications strategist, first at the social media intelligence platform Pulsar and then freelance. I now work at the London Review of Books as Head of Audience.
I live in north London for the foreseeable moment.
