I am a graduate student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am working towards a master's degree in library science, with a concentration in archives and records management. After graduation, I hope to work in an academic archives or special collections. I am personally interested in women's diary writing, and am always reading primary and secondary sources about life writing. I am an intermittent diarist myself, and my diary is often the scene of my own struggles with truth, inclusion/exclusion, and audience. I hope to someday publish a biography of the woman who inspired my interest in diaries, Lydia Olsson, alongside a transcript of her original diaries.
