Digital Projects

Developer/Designer, August 2017–May 2018

“The Nostromo Project,” Loyola University Chicago,

The central focus of this project is to catalogue the serialization of Joseph Conrad’s Nostromo in T.P.’s Weekly throughout 1904—with a special focus on the connection between the advertisements present on the pages of the publication that surround the narrative space the serials inhabit and the thematic development within the narrative itself.


Research Assistant/Designer, August 2017–May 2018

“The May Weber Digital Collection,” Loyola University Chicago, Project Director: Catherine Nichols

The digital project side of The May Weber Ethnographic Study Collection is to provide public access to the collection as a means of both encouraging the study of ongoing effects of cultural interaction and as a way of decolonizing the documentation catalogue.
