I am a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation for Latin American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin (2017-2019).

I am interested in libraries, book history, and digital humanities. I study textual replication in a colonial context: scribal copying, photostatic facsimiles, automatic transcription, and surrogate repatriation across the U.S.-Mexico border. I wrote about this in my dissertation, "Unreadable Books: Early Colonial Mexican Documents in Circulation."

From 2015-2017, I managed the Reading the First Books project at LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections. As a CLIR fellow, I am working with the digital archive of the Policía Nacional de Guatemala as part of the post-custodial digital archiving initiatives at LLILAS Benson.

I earned my PhD in comparative literature from the University of Texas at Austin in 2017.
