I joined Digital Research Services in 2018 after completing my Ph.D. in English at the University of Maryland. I provide technical expertise for digital humanities projects and work with researchers who wish to use library collections in innovative ways, such as online exhibits, digital mapping, and text mining. I also work closely with other campus units that support the digital humanities, including the Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative and the Digital Innovation Lab.
Before coming to Chapel Hill, I worked as the Manager of Digital Projects at Detroit Historical Society and as an adjunct professor at Lawrence Technological University.
