I am a librarian who is passionate about open knowledge and public humanities. Currently I’m a Librarian for Digital Academic Strategies at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. I previously worked as the Open Access Specialist at Boston University and received my M.S. in Library and Information Science from Simmons College. In my career as a librarian, I have advocated for open access to information, educated others about open access practices, and coordinated programming to promote the use of open educational resources. I am also active in a number of public humanities projects that promote community building, self-reflection, and social justice. I am a member of the SPARC Open Education Leadership Program 2018-19 cohort.

I’m a digital librarian/humanist with a background in English literature. My research interest is in eighteenth-century poetry, especially early romanticism. My research is primarily digital in nature, openly licensed, and always open access. I work in the digital library programme of the Bodleian Libraries at the University of Oxford.
