My research interests include affective + embodied data, decolonial mapping + data visualization, and electronic literatures. In my bachelor's degree, I earned the Five College Certificate in Native American and Indigenous Studies and wrote my senior honors thesis on Indigenous speculative fiction and digital media. While writing, I began working with the Immersive Realities Lab for the Humanities (IRLH), where I was introduced to the digital humanities. I became interested in interrogating the relationship between settler colonialism and digital technologies. My desire to understand the technological half of this equation better led me to pursue an MFA in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design.

While at Parsons, I worked to bring the critical together with the creative, pursuing projects in speculative design, data visualization, and physical computation. My masters thesis focused on normative knowledge information structures in library catalogs, using the Barnard Zine Library at Columbia as a case study, and arguing that radical collections require radically different approaches to collection visualization, search and discovery, and categorization.

In my current role at Penn, I work to support the scholarly projects of others, as well as collaborate with my colleagues in the library and the Price Lab. Current projects include forays into data visceralization, textual analysis of online fanfiction communities, and critiques of corporate pride campaigns.
