I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Utah Digital Matters Lab in Marriott Library and affiliated faculty with the Environmental Humanities Graduate Program. I research and teach at the intersections of environmental humanities, digital humanities, and new media studies. I’m currently working on a book manuscript about how the narratives and genres that biodiversity discourse draws upon are important to what organisms, people, and places are highlighted or obscured in conservation decisions. Interrelated with this question is my investigation of how the affordances of the digital mediums in which this discussion takes place affect what it is possible to think about biodiversity. In my spare time, I work on various collaborative projects with digital humanists, biologists, and social scientists on biodiversity, climate change, and forests. I completed my PhD in English at the University of California Santa Barbara in 2016.
