Hello! I’m a Teaching Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Computing and Information. My work is motivated by curiosity about people and their recordkeeping practices, and a desire to share that curiosity with others. My approaches are slow, collaborative, and interdisciplinary.

Currently, you might find me:

teaching courses on archives and records management in Pitt’s Master of Library and Information Sciences program.

learning about the work of community archivists and memory workers in Pittsburgh.

co-facilitating workshops on Art + Data and considering the interpretive nature of data work and the possibilities that arise when we use unexpected materials.

In the past, I have also:

collaborated on the development and facilitation of the Socio-Technical Sustainability Roadmap, including the creation of a facilitator’s manual designed to help others lead their own Roadmap workshops.

co-organized the Personal Digital Archiving conference in 2019.

held various job titles, including archivist, project coordinator, manager of digital intiatives, sample knitter, microfilm clerk, dog walker, etc.
