Over the past ten years, I’ve been privileged to work closely with numerous academic departments, instructional technologists, libraries, faculty and students on evaluating and implementing the latest research technologies to advance teaching and learning. I am currently Head of Research and Learning Technology for the Harvard College Library.

My interest in academic research technology developed while completing my doctorate in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard. In addition to working on course Web sites for the department, I became Project Manager of the Decameron Web at Brown University, a NEH-sponsored humanities computing project. At Brown, I collaborated with the Scholarly Technology Group on adding a series of new pedagogical and metadata tools to an electronic version of Boccaccio’s great literary work.
