Uma studies the creation of political boundaries, between institutions, individuals, and groups. What goals are achieved through the delineation of "public" and "private," or "in-group" and "out-group," and how can these definitions be operationalized to achieve power (and for whom?)? She is particularly interested in "data" as a resource for the state and businesses -- how do these entities transform this resource into information, and subsequently, legitimacy?
