I completed my PhD in Communication, Information, & Library Studies at Rutgers University, School of Communication & Information. I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oklahoma Libraries, where I was a Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellow from 2016-2018. In August 2020, I will be starting as Assistant Professor in Digital Curation and Preservation at University of Arizona’s iSchool.
I study how to use virtual reality technologies for scholarship and teaching, and in particular, how to curate and archive virtual reality technology and 3D research data.
My dissertation is entitled “The Construction of Preservation Knowledge in the Artisanal Digital Reformatting of Analog Video Recordings,” and it looks at how knowledge is constructed within the material practices and discourses of preservationists digitizing analog video tapes in small-scale, “artisanal” preservation labs.
Many thanks to my tireless, supportive, and inestimable Dissertation Committee: Dr. Marija Dalbello (PhD Advisor & Chair), Dr. Nicholas Belkin, Dr. Susan Keith, & Dr. Alan Galey (Outside Member, University of Toronto)
