Penetrating so many secrets,
we cease to believe in the unknowable.
But there it sits nevertheless,
calmly licking its chops.*


My name is Emma Stamm.
I'm a writer, PhD student and instructor at Virginia Tech.
My research examines blockchain technology through the lens of social theory.
I also make music, build digital art and stargaze whenever I can.
