I studied literature and information at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. Now I'm a digital scholarship librarian in Raynor Memorial Libraries at Marquette University, where I'm part of the Digital Scholarship Lab. I do poetry, translation, digital humanities, public digital scholarship, and information literacy.
My current research project is about information literacy and new media. My ongoing creative research project is a digital documentary poetry project called MOUNDS. The project also includes public digital scholarship at The Sundial and Edge Effects. It's about medieval studies and white settler colonialism.
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 at UW. For one year I was a teaching assistant and instructor in the English 100 program in the English department on campus. I’m also involved in the Data Carpentry workshop group at the Data Science Hub on campus.
