Research Data Systems Manager, Purdue University Libraries
Running for: Chair-Elect
Digital Preservation Coordinator, Virginia Tech
Running for: Treasurer
My work at Virginia Tech is largely policy writing, collaborating on developing and implementing preservation workflows, and consulting with my colleagues on preservation needs. My research interests are in repository certification metrics, digital preservation documentation, and the preservation of 3D objects and Digital Humanities projects.
I am running for the Treasurer position on the Leadership Team. I have served as the MetaArchive Treasurer for almost two years as we investigated changes to our financial health and transitioned our budget structure. I believe that given our current time of transition and changing budget priorities, I can provide context and recent historical knowledge to the way our budget is managed. I also serve as co-chair for the Outreach & Membership Services Committee, and have been with the Outreach folks since 2020, and previously served at the Leadership Team Secretary. I look forward to the opportunity to serve and to helping support the forward-movement of MetaArchive. Thank you for your time and consideration.
