Design for social good, archives for the marginalized, art for art’s sake.
Whether mass-digitized print primary sources or born-digital materials, providing meaningful access to digital archives online involves a lot more than just posting them online. I specialize in digital asset management, linked open data, data visualization and digital humanities approaches to archives. My primary goal is to increase access to archives of marginalized groups under-represented in the historical record.
Following trends and best practices across the field, I seek to build websites that embody the principles of user experience design. My web development process includes conducting interviews, creating personas, site maps, wireframes, and design prototypes, A/B testing, surveying, and iterative development.
My research interests include ethical use and representations of data and archives online, user experience design for social good, historical erasures of marginalized groups, digital preservation of web-based materials, linked open data, and complex digital asset management.
