Full Bio: 

I am Director of Programs and Administration for HASTAC and the Futures Initiative at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. The Futures Initiative advances equity and innovation in higher education through student-centered teaching and learning, and promotes reinvestment in higher education as a public good. My scholarly work focuses on many aspects of higher education reform, including scholarly communication practices, professionalization and career development, public scholarship, and advocacy for fair labor policies. I am currently working on a book, in contract with Duke University Press: Putting the Humanities Ph.D. to Work: Theories, Practice, and Models for Thriving Beyond the Classroom.

Before joining CUNY, I was managing editor of MLA Commons, the Modern Language Association’s online platform designed to connect members with one another to foster collaboration, enrich discussion, and facilitate new modes of scholarly publishing. While at the MLA, I contributed to the association's initiatives on reforming doctoral education, broadening career horizons, and advocating for fair labor practices.

I previously worked with the Scholarly Communication Institute, an organization devoted to exploring new modes of scholarly production, higher education reform, and the value of the humanities in the digital age. My research at SCI focused on perceptions of career preparedness among humanities scholars working in alternative academic careers. I contributed to the development of the Praxis Network, a multi-institutional and international effort geared toward sharing model programs and experiments in humanities methodological training. My past work also includes contributions to the strategic development of the Digital Information Technology program at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and teaching language and literature courses at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where I completed my PhD in Comparative Literature in 2010.
