Research and writing leading to a book-length study on how US technology companies and the Chinese government are changing the global relationships among individuals, governments, and markets.

My book project, Border Patrol on the Digital Frontier: China, the United States, and the Global War over Data, argues that by structuring the storage and limiting the flow of consumer data into and out of its borders, China is defining the relationship between citizens, data, and the nation in the twenty-first century not just within its own borders, but also—through its engagement with transnational technology corporations—for the world. The intellectual significance of this project lies in its examination of how the tetrabytes of data being generated by consumer applications are challenging individual and national identities, particularly through the cooperative structuring of this data by corporations and national governments. Because consumer data touches on the most intimate moments of human life, which are now shared online, this project shapes questions of identity and power in the twenty-first century, both for scholars and the general public.
