About & CV

I'm an M.A. student in English and a research assistant at the Maker Lab. I work at the intersections of digital humanities, Victorian studies, and media studies. Recently, my research moves across media and book history, focusing on nineteenth-century forgery and how we assign authenticity or authority to text—original or duplicate, print or digital.

Places where I blog.

Maker Lab

I write announcements and updates about the Maker Lab's projects and publications, particularly ongoing research on the optophone.


I blogged about the process of making a virtual exhibit (see above) on nineteenth-century stereophotography for Queen's University Libraries, as well as my experience as an undergraduate researcher more generally.
