Maggie researches the creative use of digital tools in post-conflict and post-colonial contexts.  Maggie’s dissertation, Infrastructure of Resilience: Cambodian Postwar Media Reconstruction, is based on twenty months of research in the arts & technology communities of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where she has been conducting research since 2014. In addition to her dissertation project, she more broadly investigates the global circulation and adoption of new digital tools and their impacts on privacy, precarious labor, informal markets, and large-scale international development organizations. Maggie’s research explores the tensions that exist between values located in digital tools themselves, which are often designed Western settings, and creative action found in the use of tools, responding to historically situated infrastructures.
