He has edited two anthologies of mobile phone studies and spent the Spring 2014 semester in India on a Fulbright grant studying the rapid proliferation of mobile phones in that country. For the summer of 2017, he was a research fellow at the Bodleian Libraries of Oxford University, doing original research with the Marconi Archives. He’s also an active member of the Radio Preservation Task Force, for whom he maintains a newsletter on radio scholarship.
