poetry / libraries / digital humanities    


I'm a graduate student in literary and library studies in the English department and the iSchool at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research includes poetry, translation, and public digital scholarship. My current creative research project is a digital documentary poetry project called MOUNDS.

On campus, I teach college writing and information literacy in the English department, and I'm involved in the Data Carpentry workshop group at the Data Science Hub. For three years I was a research assistant at the digital humanities platform project Digital Mappa at the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture, where I did project and product management, open-access scholarly publications, and digital pedagogy. Recently I worked on metadata standards at the Mukurtu Midwest Hub at WiLS (formerly Wisconsin Library Services).

Professional interests include digital humanities and academic libraries. Other research areas include medieval studies, literary theory, and new media.
