Hello, my name is Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo and I am a PhD candidate in Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University. I graduated from Cornell with a B.A. in Science & Technology Studies and a B.A. in Sociology in 2008. After graduating I was accepted into the national teaching program Teach for America and placed in Houston Texas, where I taught elementary math and science between 2008 to 2010. In fall 2011 I returned to Cornell as a PhD candidate to pursue an interest in topics related to gender and digital music software but have since broadened my research interests to include a wide array of sound studies topics, including sound and gaming as well as the identity politics of community studios. In September 2014 I completed my A-exams and I received my M.A. in Science and Technology Studies in 2015. I am currently in the dissertation research phase of my PhD.
In addition to my research and teaching obligations, I have also been rapping and producing under the stage name Sammus since 2009.
