About Fanny A. Ramirez
I am a PhD Candidate in the School of Communication and Information at Rutgers University with a research emphasis in Communication and Technology.
My research examines the uses and affordances of information communication technologies (ICTs) for different branches of the criminal justice system. Recurring throughout my research are questions on how ICTs both reproduce and defy existing biases and inequalities, and what this means for the treatment of marginalized groups.
In addition to my work on the role of communication in the criminal justice system, I conduct research on online communities and videogames. My research in this area has examined the role of affect and social value in mobile games and the use of ICTs by players of massively multiplayer online games to build and maintain friendships.
