Welcome! I’m the head of digital scholarship at Boston College Libraries. Our department explores and documents new tools and supports teaching and research in a variety of areas that utilize broad methodologies in the digital humanities.
I received my PhD from Emory University’s Graduate Institute of the Liberal Arts. My dissertation examines how public histories of the U.S. civil rights movement and South African anti-apartheid resistance “travel” locally, nationally, and globally in museums.
Previously, I was the digital projects coordinator at the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS). I served as the project manager for the mapping platform ATLMaps, Unpacking Manuel’s Tavern—an immersive archive of Atlanta’s left—and several open access publications.
