About Me

I am a PhD Candidate in the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester. My research focuses on interactions between museums and digital communities which discuss topics that align with the museums’ curatorial subject matter. This enables me to be an astute spotter of trends both within the museum field and on the wider web.

Concurrently, I work as the Digital Project Manager for the American Museum of Natural History. Previously, I developed digital content as the Digital Interpretive Specialist at the New York Botanical Garden through a National Endowment of the Humanities grant. I have also held marketing positions at both of the world’s leading producers of audio tours and apps for museums and tourist locations, and worked at a variety of museums, including The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art,  The Morgan Library and Museum, The Rubin Museum of Himalayan Art, The Jewish Museum, and The Newark Museum.
