Dean of Libraries & Chief Academic Technology Officer, Professor
I joined JMU as Dean of Libraries and Professor of English in mid-2019, after a career in research and library-based DH administration and the digital cultural heritage nonprofit sphere. Since April 2020, I’ve additionally served as JMU’s Chief Academic Technology Officer. It’s my privilege to help shape James Madison University’s approach to technology for research, teaching, and learning, and to lead the wonderful staff and faculty of the JMU Libraries.
