I am Assistant Dean for Digital Humanities Research at the University of Maryland Libraries and an Associate Director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH). I work on developing digital research projects and services at the intersection of digital humanities centers and libraries. I am also responsible for curating the active research data of MITH and for helping the University of Maryland Libraries plan and create a broad complement of data curation and e-Research services.
My background is in Library and Information Science and Digital Humanities. I specialized in data curation for the humanities as a master’s student at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I completed a master’s degree in Digital Humanities at the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King’s College London, in 2009. While at King’s I focused mainly on electronic publishing and digital literary studies though I have since worked on a number of digital history projects as well. I graduated from Harvard University with a bachelor’s degree in English in 2005.
