As project manager for strategic DH initiatives at UVa, my primary reporting relationship is within the School of Data Science as program manager for the graduate DH Certificate. My second position is within Library IT as project manager for DH@UVA and the Mandala 2.0 software development project.
My training is in nineteenth-century British literature and IT project management and strategy. After teaching English literature at UVA, Princeton University, the University of South Carolina, Dickinson College, and Shippensburg University, I became involved in DH project management at UVA's Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities. Spurred on by the intellectual and technical challenges I encountered, I completed a master's degree in IT management at the McIntire School of Commerce at UVA in 2016.
Combined with my PhD in English (UVA 2009), my management degree enables me to work with faculty, university administrators, and students to manage complex processes and identify institutional efficiencies without sacrificing my enduring commitment to scholarship and teaching in the humanities.
