About Me

I am a fourth year doctoral student in Drexel University's Information Science PhD program and Research Assistant at Drexel's Metadata Research Center. My research interests are Knowledge Organization, Topical Relevance Evaluation, and Automatic Metadata Generation. my dissertation research is centered on automated knowledge extraction and topical representation for historical resources.

My research interests stem from my course work, my developing expertise in metadata, and my current work on the "Developing the Data Set of Nineteenth-Century Knowledge" project, a National Endowment for the Humanities collaborative project with Temple University's Digital Scholarship Center. The grant is part of a larger project, Temple's "19th-Century Knowledge Project," which is digitizing four historical editions of the Encyclopedia Britannica (3rd, 7th, 9th, and 11th editions).

In addition, have the honor to serve as Project Manager for the LEADING LIS data science fellowship program, and served as Project Manager for its predecesor program, Library Education and Data Science for the National Digital Platform (LEADS-4-NDP), between 2019-2020. I also manage Drexel CCI's Metadata Research Center website.

I have presented my research in Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, and Estonia, and across the United States.
