As the Visual Resources Librarian for Islamic Art and Architecture, I curate, develop, and maintain Harvard's Aga Khan Collection of digital images and slides related to the Islamic world. I am also available for consultations and workshops on finding, creating, and using these images in academic work. Please feel free to reach out any time!

I earned my PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and have expertise in Arabic literature and Islamic history as well as in Islamic art and visual culture. I am always happy to help students and faculty in any way I can.
