I completed my PhD in Communication, Information, & Library Studies at Rutgers University, School of Communication & Information. I am now currently a Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oklahoma, where I am studying 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 was entitled “The Construction of Preservation Knowledge in the Artisanal Digital Reformatting of Analog Video Recordings,” and it looked at how knowledge is constructed within the material practices and discourses of preservationists digitizing analog video tapes in small-scale, “artisanal” preservation labs.
