Professional Bio

My research focus is at the intersection of 19th century African American Literature, 19th century Black Print Culture, and Black Digital Humanities, with a particular concentration on Black women's writing. In my capacity as research assistant for Dr. Shirley Moody-Turner, I have helped organize the Cooper-Du Bois Mentoring Program annually for the past two years and from 2019-2020 I was Project Manager for Douglass Day 2020, an annual global crowd-sourcing event centering transcription, reading, and public engagement with Black Archives. Along with my project management duties, I am well-versed in Zooniverse as a platform for transcribing archival materials and helped to design the transcription program for Douglass Day 2020. I currently serve as a fellow for the Center for Black Digital Research, where I will be continuing my work with the Cooper-Du Bois Mentoring Program and my research with Black women's archives.
