Hello there! My name is Tawfiq Ammari. I am an Assistant Professor at the Rutgers University School of Communication and Information. I was advised by Prof. Sarita Yardi Schoenebeck at the University of Michigan School of Information. My CV and complete list of publications are here.
My research lies at the intersection of Social Computing, Data Science, and Science, Technology, and Society Studies (STS). My work focuses on the interplay between technological and social role change. Specifically, I study how large societal shifts, such as changing norms around masculinity, are associated with online interactions and social movements. I also research how the mass adoption of technologies like social media and emerging technologies like voice assistants affects social roles in the domestic sphere. I am a mixed methods researcher connecting critical theory values from STS with computational social science techniques to advocate for equity and progressive social change in online contexts.
