I am a historian of computing, communications, and gender.  I earned my Ph.D. in History from Yale University. My projects are united by attention to people who have been considered irrelevant to invention and innovation but who have, nonetheless, been agents of technological and social change. My attention to gender and race enables me to excavate stories that others have consistently overlooked. My book A People’s History of Computing in the United States will be available from Harvard University Press in Fall 2018. I am currently developing two more book-length projects; the first is tentatively titled You've Got Hate Mail: A History of Unwanted Attention. The second investigates the history of the (ridiculous) idea that girls can’t do math, a perniciously persistent concept that has masked projects of gender, race, class, empire, and labor. I am an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University, with appointments in the Center for Gender in Global Context, James Madison College, and Lyman Briggs College. I enthusiastically write as a Contributing Editor for Lady Science. My scholarship has received recognition and support from, among others, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Charles Babbage Institute for the History of Information Technology, and the IEEE.
