I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Information Science at the University of South Carolina. I have also received a Graduate Certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies at UofSC where I continue to work as an adjunct instructor.
My research interests include: critical information studies, embodied information practices, queer theory, diversity in cultural heritage spaces, found footage archives, accessibility in the archive, LGTBTQIA+ information access, intersectionality, and cataloging, and the myriad boundaries of gender, bodies, and technology. I am open to new research opportunities in emerging media, archives, and anything about reframing knowledge organization towards and from the lived experiences of historically marginalized identities. I am also the digital archivist for the community archive Archiving South Carolina Women and am working on co-curating the Queer Cola Oral History and Digital Archive. I am also the research assistant on an IMLS-funded grant focused on the health information practices of LGBTQIA+ communities in South Carolina.
I am trying to achieve cyborg status with little success.
