CV

I’m the visiting History & Humanities Librarian at Barnard. Before coming to Barnard, I was the First Year Outreach Services Librarian at Pace University and have previously worked at Sarah Lawrence College and the Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Archives at New York University. I hold a Master's in Library & Information Sciences, as well as a Masters of Arts in the Humanities, with an undergraduate degree in the liberal arts with a focus on critical theory and media studies. My research focuses on critical pedagogy in library instruction and student engagement and outreach.
