Robbins Librarian, Robbins Library of Philosophy
Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Robbins Library of Philosophy

I am the librarian for the Robbins Library of Philosophy and co-administrator (with Ramona Crawford) of the Peer Research Fellows program at Harvard.

Before becoming a librarian I earned a Ph.D. in English Literature, specializing in 16th and 17th century British literature, early print, and manuscript culture. I try to stay active in this area by teaching the occasional class on paleography and conducting research on early modern printers.

When not working I am usually out on my bike or at the movies.
