She is also a doctoral candidate in Feminist Studies at UC Santa Cruz, applying post-socialist analytics, feminist science studies, and critical race studies to unearth techno-utopic fantasies of freedom within and beyond the Bay Area. Currently, Erin is an artist fellow at the Kala Institute in Berkeley.
