About

I am the CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow in Social Science Data Curation at the University at Buffalo, where I work with the UB Libraries’ Scholarly Communications team to develop and implement digital scholarship and data management support and programming.

I have a PhD in Classical & Near Eastern Archaeology from Bryn Mawr College, where my dissertation project focused on globalization theory and urban landscapes in Roman-period Turkey. My current research focuses on digital methodologies and workflows for the humanities and social sciences, as well as best practices for curating digital resources and supporting digital scholarship within academic libraries. I am also in the process of preparing my dissertation data for open-access publication.

Research interests: Classical and Near Eastern art and archaeology, architecture, imperialism, urbanism, archaeological theory, digital scholarship, digital pedagogy, data curation.

Digital scholarship expertise: data wrangling, data visualization, digital mapping, project management, web publishing, Shiny web apps.
