I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Michigan School of Information. My dissertation research examines the social construction of risk in the audit and certification of trustworthy digital repositories. I also conduct research in the areas of digital preservation, digital curation, and data reuse, focusing on social and ethical barriers that limit or prevent the preservation, sharing, and reuse of digital information. I have an MSI from the University of Michigan School of Information with a specialization in Preservation of Information, and a BA in Organizational Studies from the University of Michigan. My work has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Australian Academy of Science.
