Prior to studying librarianship and information science, I earned a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from California State University, Long Beach. My research interests include 19th century British Literature, contemporary poetry and poetics, scholarly communication, digital special collections, and digital humanities. I am passionate about teaching and utilizing digital tools to preserve scholarly research and cultural heritage materials. I have a special interest in geospatial humanities and I am actively engaged in the ways GIS technologies can be used to visualize and explore spaces in literary scholarship and history.
I'm excited to announce that effective July 3, 2017, I'll be joining the NCSU Libraries Fellowship Program. I'll be working on supporting digital scholarship services in the Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center.
