I’m Editor and Outreach Co-Ordinator at Open Book Publishers, a leading independent not-for-profit Open Access book publisher, founded and run by academics. I work with ScholarLed, a consortium of five academic-led, not-for-profit OA book presses of which Open Book Publishers is a founder member, and I do outreach work for the COPIM (Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs) project, which is building open, community-governed infrastructure to develop and strengthen Open Access book publishing. I’m also completing a PhD on theatrical adaptations of nineteenth-century novels and poetry. Cover photo by Jason Leung on Unsplash.

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.
