I am currently a graduate student at Indiana University Bloomington completing a Masters of Library Science. I am centering my degree around rare books librarianship and digital humanities.

After completing my MLS, I will be continuing to a PhD in Information Science centered around how information science can inform the fields of rare books and book history, especially as I continue my research on the Navarrese book trade in the 17th century through the dissertation.

When not research or reading, I enjoy knitting, reading (obviously), and cooking for friends and family.

The Library will endure; it is the universe.
