I am a research scientist for New York University Libraries, and I am wrapping up my Master’s in Library and Information Science (MLIS) with the University of Washington. In Autumn, I will be a Pre-Doctoral student with the University of Washington’s Information School. Currently, I live in the Graton Rancheria and Me-Wuk Indigenous lands, also known as North Bay Area in California (USA). My research focuses on the impact that open source technologies have had on individual and community memory and behaviors. This ranges from scholars and researchers experiences with source code using version control, open source hardware in response to COVID-19, preserving podcasts as a community of practice, the spread of misinformation on Twitter during the COVID-19 pandemic, and dance/movement archives. I have experience in building and conducting workshop and course curricula, proposal writing, project and website management, and audiovisual archiving for various disciplines—publishing, sustainable urban/economic development, libraries/archives, and dance/performance. I look forward to collaborating with others on uplifting the rights, agencies, and stories of those coming from marginalized communities through research, service, and transparency.
