I'm a scholar working at the intersections of media theory, science and technology studies, and literary criticism. I study histories and ideas, I make video games and other digital projects, and I teach at the University of Notre Dame du Lac. I also write fiction, make memes, and shoot film. My work appears, or is forthcoming in, Critical Inquiry , American Literature, Design Issues, and Configurations, among other venues.
I am an assistant professor in the Department of English and concurrently in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre at the University of Notre Dame, where I also hold the Ruth and Paul Idzik College Chair in Digital Scholarship. I am also affiliated with the Lucy Family Institute for Data and Society, The Notre Dame Initiative on Race and Resilience, The Notre Dame Technology Ethics Center, the Program in History and Philosophy of Science at the John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values, and the Idzik Computing and Digital Technologies Program.
Previously, I have studied Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Indore and English at the University of Chicago. I obtained my PhD in English Literature, with a designated emphasis in Science and Technology Studies, from the University of California, Davis. I originally hail from Punjab and currently reside in Indiana. You can find a copy of my CV here.
