Full Bio: 

I am an educational consultant, working with institutions to design and implement structures that are creative, sustainable, and equitable. I have over a decade of experience as an administrator, researcher, and faculty member, and am the author of Putting the Humanities PhD to Work: Thriving in and beyond the Classroom (Duke University Press, 2020). My scholarly work focuses on higher education reform, including scholarly communication practices, professionalization and career development, public scholarship, and advocacy for fair labor policies.

Most recently, I served as co-director of the Futures Initiative at CUNY, an incubator that advances equity and innovation in higher education through student-centered teaching and learning, and promotes reinvestment in higher education as a public good. I also serve as co-director of the CUNY Humanities Alliance, Director of Programs and Administration of HASTAC, and as an adjunct faculty member in the GC’s Master’s Program in Digital Humanities.

My career pathway has taken me in and out of universities. Before joining CUNY, I served as managing editor of MLA Commons at 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.

Each of these roles has helped me to understand — and work to improve — the systems and structures of higher education. Now, I’m helping other institutions to do the same. Learn more about the services I offer, and reach out if you’d like to connect about a project.
