I am a historian of 20th century media studying the ways that technologies and mediums were imagined, packaged, and sold to consumers and industry. My book Bright Signals: A History of Color Television (Duke UP, 2018) was awarded the 2019 SCMS Katherine Singer Kovács Book Award and the 2019 Michael Nelson Book Prize presented by the International Association for Media and History.
I am Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University. I am a 2021 Guggenheim fellow and my research has also been supported by the NEH, ACLS, AAUW, and the NYU Center for the Humanities.
