 Welcome! Bienvenue! Hoş geldin! I'm a PhD candidate in UC Berkeley's sociology department,  and currently on the job market (2024-2025). My dissertation is titled "Time and Money Well Spent? Meanings of Platform Work." It focuses on the experiences and motivations of American "data workers," who get paid to generate the data that fuels academic research and the development of artificial intelligence.
