The Digital Innovation Lab welcomes the newest member of our team: Jade Davis. Jade is a PhD student in the department of Communication Studies, with a Media Studies and Performance focus. Her research interests explore how diasporic people use digital technology, asking the question, “what does it mean to be Black online?” Jade was a HASTAC Scholar and Student Representative to the Steering Committee, has been involved in the Mozilla Labs Design Jam, and helped organize last fall’s THATCamp RTP. She comes from a web design and production background.
Jade will join the diPH technical team, assisting us with documentation and training materials for diPH Beta 1.0. She will also work on theme design this spring.
