Wired! Fellow
Class of 2019 | Psychology and Art History & Visual Arts

I am a senior double majoring in Psychology and Art History & Visual Arts from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I first joined the Wired! Lab working with Dr. Sara Galletti in the beginning stages of her Mapping Stereotomy project. Currently, I am involved in the Imagining Venice project spearheaded by Dr. Kristin Huffman, an exhibit which will feature the Rubenstein Library’s recent acquisition of a copy of Ludovici Ughi’s georectifiable map of Venice, and its relation to the Grand Tour. I am directly involved in animating portions of the map and developing the stories of eighteenth century historical characters in Venice. The summer before my junior year, I interned at the Met Cloisters in New York City, which gave me valuable insight into museum careers. The subsequent fall, I took a Wired! class with Dr. Huffman entitled, “The Splendor of Renaissance Venice,” which first sparked my interest in the region and gave me experience with research and digital techniques in this field. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing and painting, playing piano, and singing with my a cappella group.
