I am project manager for Humanities Commons and other digital initiatives at the Modern Language Association. Previously, I was a Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellow at Emory University, a position that was shared between the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives & Rare Book Library and the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship. I am a member of the Journal for Interactive Technology & Pedagogy editorial collective. In addition to my interest in the intersections between libraries, archives, and digital humanities, I research and write about African American culture and the Spanish Civil War.
