Welcome to my personal website. I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at the University of California, Riverside. My primary research field is Twentieth-Century United States, with a focus on the postwar era and digital humanities.

In the Summer of 2011, I worked as a research assistant at the Center for Bibliographical Studies and Research at UC Riverside. At the CBSR I focused on the Born Digital newspaper project within the California Digital Newspaper Collection which archives current weekly newspapers, most often produced in digital formats.
I am a coordinating member, as well as the website editor, of the Critical Digital Humanities collective at UC Riverside. The CDH is a group of graduate students and faculty “who work, on and through, the complex materialities of digital networks.”
I’m also a founding member and the webmaster for the Material Cultures of the Book Working Group at UCR – http://bookhistory.ucr.edu – which explores the ”the discourse surrounding the materiality of books and printed matter throughout the manuscript, hand-press and machine press-periods, and into the digital age.”
