Collaborating with Assistant Professor Shelly Eversley, I developed the Equality Archive as a an Open Educational Resource (OER) based on contemporary models of digital media. The Equality Archive creates, shares, and aggregates multimodal content about sex and gender equality in the United States.
Collaborating with other Center for Teaching and Learning staff, I helped produce a comprehensive report on hybridized learning at Baruch College during the Spring of 2015. We conducted a survey and gathered student and faculty responses to learn more about their hybrid teaching and learning experiences. The report can be viewed at On Hybridization.
Yelp.com Reviews and Gentrification
I worked with graduate student Scarlett Lindeman and Dr. Sharon Zukin from the Sociology department at The Graduate Center, CUNY. We collected and analyzed thousands of Yelp reviews from two rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhoods. The paper titled “The omnivore’s neighborhood? Online restaurant reviews, race, and gentrification” was published by the Journal of Consumer Culture in the Fall of 2015.
Cultivating a Lifestyle: The Process and Praxis of Simple Living
I completed original research with individuals who voluntarily decided to live more simply. I conducted interviews with various individuals making large-scale changes to achieve their desired lifestyle. I analyzed the qualitative data to dive deeply into their stories and gain a unique perspective on how and why individuals chose to invoke the various lifestyle changes. You can learn more about this project by visiting The Simplicity Archive.
