I am a doctoral student and instructor at Drexel University's College of Information Science and Technology. My research focuses on citizen archivist communities and how they collaboratively build online history archives. My research has implications for archival participatory practice and provides a foundation for the design of systems that support archives users as consumers and producers of historical materials.
