The following is a sample of the various projects I worked on as a graduate student, both independently and with groups. I’ve processed collections, archived a website, created a database, built tutorials, and developed digital preservation workflows. I’ve taken courses on a variety of topics from digital preservation to material science, archival foundations, information architecture and design, digitization, and database management.
