Avery is a current PhD Student in the Department of English at Northeastern University. Avery completed her MA in English at Northeastern University in May 2020 and also received a Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities. Her research interests include digital humanities, nineteenth-century American print culture, digital archives, and nineteenth-century cookbooks and domestic manuals.
Much of her work focuses on the circulation and adaptation of recipes across the United States in the nineteenth-century as well as the economics of class, labor, and food. In her spare time, Avery enjoys sewing and is the proud mother to a one month old hairless cat named Pluto, though there is room in her heart for a countless number of cats.
Avery is the current Project Manager for the Early Caribbean Digital Archive, a Research Assistant for the Viral Texts Project, Tech Lead to the Boston Collecton of Journal of the Plague Year: A Covid-19 Digital Archive, and Website and Database Designer for Pandemic Shakespeare.
