I’m based at Curtin University on Noongar Boodja, Boorloo (Perth), in the discipline of Internet Studies (but of course I don’t speak for the department or any other organisation).
My research focuses on understanding how people (especially activists) use and change technologies of everyday life. My research is tightly interwoven with teaching, and I enjoy finding ways to share my work with people outside of academia. Currently, my focus is on understanding and contributing to action on climate change.
Some of my previous research has looked at using queer parenting praxis to improve our approaches to developing artificial intelligence; intersectional perspectives on understanding freedom of speech online; how Tunisian activists are approaching Internet reform in the wake of the revolution; and Greek anti-fascist activism.
I’ve also enjoyed working with the folks at Ad Astra comix to translate some of my work into comic form, check it out here or get a copy at the Ad Astra site.
I’ve worked with activist and community groups around the world – including Tactical Technology – on research, workshops, and other collaborations. If you’re interested in working together, get in touch at s dot croeser [at] curtin dot net dot au.
