What makes Rochester a prison town? The Rochester Decarceration Research Initiative was formed to pursue this question. I am working with Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge, Associate Professor of Art at UR, on a public art installation entitled “The only thing I can see is the sky.” As Leblanc-Roberge’s research assistant and collaborator, I created a digital/analog campaign that provides viewers of the installation with more information on the project, the artists, and the wider research initiative.

For the 2018-2019 academic year, I worked as a Kress Interpretive Fellow at the George Eastman Museum. Sponsored by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, this competitive fellowship is designed to foster collaboration between museum educators and curators. Building on my independent work with the museum’s collection, my primary project was to design and test digital resources for the museums’ History of Photography Gallery.
