Pronouns: she/her/hers I am a first generation PhD and librarian from a working-class settler family in Northern Ontario, Canada. I lived in Toronto for several years before relocating to the United States in 2015 in order to join the curatorial staff at Rare Book School at the University of Virginia. During my graduate studies, I worked at the rare book library and research centre, Joseph Sablé Centre for 19th Century French Studies, and taught undergraduate French as a Second Language and French Cultural Studies courses in the Department of French at the University of Toronto. My interdisciplinary doctoral dissertation focused on publishers of poetry in 19th century France and entailed several summers of conducting research at the Bibliothèque nationale de France and at the Archives départementales de l’Orne. My current research has shifted towards the study of contemporary graphic novels and comic book culture and to special collections librarianship.

Hi! I am a postdoc at the Physical Geography unit of Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel. Since my Master I work with prehistoric and classical archaeologists in different research projects mainly in central Europe, Greece, and Turkey. Together we investigate human-society-landscape-environment interactions. My main methodological tools are quantitative spatial analyses using models as heuristic devices. Besides landscape archeology, I am interested in (critical physical) geography, reproducible research, philosophy of science, inter-, and transdisciplinarity.
