I am the Associate Director of the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) at the University of Victoria, a lab I’ve been a member of since 2012. I’m also an interdisciplinary PhD Candidate at UVic, studying open social scholarship and its implementation. I’m interested in how we can share academic research more broadly, and doing so in ways that are findable, usable, and interesting to lots of different people.
I have the pleasure of serving as Operational Lead for the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) Partnership, where I am a co-facilitator of the Connection cluster. I’m a member of the Directorial Group and the Operational Team for the annual Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). Alongside my colleagues Ray Siemens and Lindsey Seatter I am a founding editor of the journal IDEAH: Interdisciplinary Digital Engagement in the Arts & Humanities and I also serve on the editorial board of the journal Pop! Public. Open. Participatory.
I hold a BA Honours in English from the University of British Columbia and an MA in English from the University of Victoria.
