I am currently the Librarian for Collections and Digital Scholarship in the Americas, Europe and Oceania Division at Harvard Library. I build distinctive collections amenable to digital scholarship while also encouraging the computational use of our collections across the globe.
I received my Ph.D. in Italian Language and Literature from Yale University. At Yale, I pioneered the establishment of the digital humanities community, coordinating the Digital Humanities Working Group, an interdisciplinary working group at the Whitney Humanities Center. In 2015-2016, I received the inaugural Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the newly founded Digital Humanities Lab. There I was the principal investigator for two digital humanities projects – The Yale Community Voices Archive and Dante at Hand. These two projects addressed different communities and disciplines, but both leveraged information technology to enhance and expand access to digitized and born-digital special collections. These efforts have enriched and enhanced my other research interest: how material and structural changes in the reproduction, storage and transmission of texts transform the ways we read, write and learn.
