I joined the Office of Digital Humanities as a program officer in August 2011, and my day-to-day work includes advising potential grant applicants, administering grant programs, and doing outreach for those who are interested in undertaking projects at the intersection of humanities research and technological innovation. I hold a Master's degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as well as a Master’s degree in American Studies from the University of Kansas. Before coming to the NEH, I worked at the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship at the University of Illinois and at the Kansas City (Missouri) Public Library.
