About

Bio

I am currently a graduate student at Indiana University Bloomington working towards 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 in my future dissertation.

In 2019, I earned an MA in the History of the Book from the University of London where I learned about book in all its forms, from cuneiform clay tablets to our present-day e-readers, and completed a dissertation on the 17th-century Pamplona bookstore of Lorenzo Coroneu. In 2021, I completed my Masters of Library Science at Indiana University, focusing my studies around rare books librarianship and digital humanities.

Outside of school and research, I enjoy knitting, reading (obviously), and cooking for friends and family.

The Library will endure; it is the universe.
