I am a digital humanist with research interests in Victorian popular and visual culture, queer history, and scholarly editing, with a special focus on modelling personhood in markup. I co-direct (with Michelle Schwartz, archivist at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives) Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada, an infrastructure pilot project of the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory at the University of Alberta. In addition to collaborations at UBC Okanagan, I serve as an assistant director of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute and a research collaborator with The Yellow Nineties Online

My work has been published in the Victorian Review, Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies, and The UBC Law Review.
