About

I am an independent scholar & program specialist in digital humanities.

My current focus is on job market transparency and the future of higher ed. I am a founding member of the Postdoctoral Laborers, the Job Market Support Network, and the Visionary Futures Collective.

I am interested in libraries, book history, and digital humanities. My dissertation research was on textual replication in a colonial context: scribal copying, photostatic facsimiles, automatic transcription, and surrogate repatriation across the U.S.-Mexico border.

From 2015-2017, I managed the Reading the First Books project at LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections. From 2017-2018 I was a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow working with the digital archive of the Policìa Nacional de Guatemala as part of the post-custodial digital archiving initiatives at LLILAS Benson. From 2018-2019 I was a postdoctoral fellow in the history of the book at Brown University.
