I am part of several collaborative projects, each of which is in my projects section. My book, Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media (MIT Press, 2018) traces long histories (21st century to 16th century) of particular technologies like wearable devices, body measurements, and body counts.

With Elizabeth Losh I also co-edited Bodies of Information: Feminist Debates in Digital Humanities, which is part of the University of Minnesota Debates in Digital Humanities series.

I took a Ph.D. and M.A. in English Literature from Brown University and a B.A. in English from the University of Iowa, where I also studied Molecular Biology. I cut my digital humanities teeth at the Brown University Women Writers Project, where I began as an encoder and later worked as the project manager and textbase editor. Prior to Dartmouth, I taught at Harvey Mudd College, Scripps College, and Arizona State University.
