I am committed to redressing historical violence through art, working towards healing trauma, and envisioning a more just society. My current research investigates the history of “Visible Speech”–from phonetics, physiological alphabet, to the sound spectrograph–and how it intersects with linguistic imperialism, scientific racism, and technosolutionism.
