I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Comparative Literature. My Ph.D. research is on the intellectual history of machine technology and the textual (“literary”) history of physics and mechanical engineering in early modernity.
Since 2019 I’ve worked as staff of the EPIC Fellowship program at Stanford’s Department of Global Studies, where I assist community college professors in developing global curricula and integrating technology in their classrooms.
My experience in EPIC led me to co-found EpicConnect, the first EdTech product designed specifically for community college instructors. The product has received ample validation from target users. My team is currently hard at work on a fully functional prototype for a Fall 2022 release. If you’d like to learn more, please reach out over on LinkedIn.
I am also the founder and project manager of Life in Quarantine: Witnessing Global Pandemic, a community resource documenting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on everyday life. In 2020, I gave an interview to the Stanford Daily about the project.
I am very much engaged in the uses of technology in and out of academic settings. From 2019-2022 I co-directed the Poetic Media Lab at the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA). In 2019 I was also a contributor to the Florentine Codex Project, a Digital Humanities partnership between scholars at Bucknell University and Stanford’s Poetic Media Lab to produce a new digital edition of Bernardino de Sahagún’s Historia general de las cosas de Nueva España.
More recently, I was teaching assistant for Dr. Keith Bowen, from the Graduate School of Education, in a course titled “EDUC 391: Engineering Education and Online Learning”, an EdTech product lab.
