I'm Senior Research Specialist at the Scholarly Communication Institute. My current project there is a broad survey assessing career preparation among alternative academics, which aims to help move #altac conversations beyond the anecdotal. I'll also be helping to support and share outcomes from a number of conversations SCI is convening on new models for scholarly publishing, and on graduate education reform. SCI will also be working on expanding the Praxis Program to include a number of allied programs. I completed a PhD in Comparative Literature at the University of Colorado in 2010; my dissertation focused on trauma and the representation of the unsayable in recent works of fiction (mostly French). I also think a lot about formal experimentation and Oulipo.
