As the Visual Resources Librarian for Islamic Art and Architecture, I manage materials related to the Islamic world writ large within the Digital Images and Slides Collection (DISC). This includes assisting anyone seeking to use these resources to further their research, so please do not hesitate to be in touch!

I received my PhD in South Asian Studies from Harvard, and my areas of expertise beyond South Asian and Islamic visual and material culture include early modern South Asian literatures and garden and landscape history.
