Curriculum Vitae

Current Position

  • Production and Preservation Manager, Digital Projects, Stanford University Press, 2016-present

In this Mellon-funded position, I evaluate the technology powering digital projects accepted for publication to ascertain their sustainability and amenability to current and developing archiving and preservation methods. To guide authors and developers to such objectives, I produce the Press’s digital project guidelines and recommendations on platforms, coding standards, and documentation of development and labor contribution. I also coordinate the production workflow, which involves managing the projects’ hosting environments, consulting with contracted authors and developers on projects’ technical attributes, cataloging and registering projects with identifying metadata, advocating for improvement in classification vocabularies for born-digital work, and working with Stanford University Libraries to identify and establish archiving solutions for each project’s unique needs and formats. Additionally, I am the lead author of the project blog at blog.supDigital.org.

Recent Academic Positions

  • Visiting Assistant Professor of English, Oklahoma State University, 2011-2016

In this position, I taught courses ranging from Introduction to Literature, Survey of British Literature (1800-present), Honors Critical Analysis and Writing, and Freshman Composition. I taught Comp online and also developed and taught the university’s first online Intro to Lit course. I developed and taught a custom curriculum for Honors Critical Writing Courses focusing on topics of remix and digital identity. I also led workshops for other instructors on advancing students’ digital identities in the classroom and using blogs as tools for students to assess their progress and establish a professional online presence. In this and previous teaching positions, I have earned excellent reviews from both students and colleagues.
