Department of Anthropology, Dartmouth
I am the manager of the Digital Humanities and Social Engagement (DHSE) cluster and directs the Digital Cultural Heritage Lab at Dartmouth College. In addition, she is an adjunct professor, lecturing on Digital Heritage and Oceanic Studies in the Anthropology Department. Previously she was a post-doc fellow at Dartmouth College through the Neukom Institute for Computational Science. Her research focuses on cultural heritage conservation, computational photography and indigenous agency. She completed her PhD in 2018 in Digital Heritage at UCSC and wrote her dissertation project "Recalibrating the Museum: The Politics of Stewardship and the Physical/Digital Repatriation of Te Hau-ki-Turanga" on the 3D documentation of a Maori meetinghouse, currently at the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa.
I have been awarded a three-year Neukom Post-doctoral Fellowship at Dartmouth College, starting in Fall 2018. As a Neukom post-doc fellow, I will be responsible for teaching courses in digital heritage that will be cross-listed in the anthropology, art history, computer science, and digital media departments. In addition, I will continue to conduct research and develop hardware and software tools that help conservators and heritage professionals quantifiably track deterioration rate to objects through scientific imaging technologies.
