My research draws on history of technology, body studies, science studies, and visual studies. I write about the technical and aesthetic practices of scientific and computer graphic modeling and visual cultures of computing in late twentieth century United States. My academic background combines fashion history and practice, material culture studies, and science and technology studies.
I have worked at several museums and special collections, primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region. I advocate for critical and thoughtful collections stewardship, expanded access to collections, and transparency and cross-disciplinary communication in museum practice.
