All Worked Up: A Project About Student Labor

Researcher & Multimedia Designer


All Worked Up is a multimodal academic research project that seeks to explore key questions regarding student labor and begins to map out the different factors that have led to the current roles, wages, and conditions of undergraduate labor. The project is a collaboration between three independent researchers and a postdoctoral scholar. Aside from research, I serve as the project's multimedia designer and am in charge of designing and creating all visual materials. The long-term goal for this project is to create a book and documentary.
