Hi, I’m Liz!

I received my doctorate in Literatures in English from Cornell University in December 2021, where I also received a master’s in 2017. Currently I’m a Season 2 producer with Change Agents the Podcast, profiling Black urban agricultural community organization Grow Greater Englewood.

My dissertation, Dirty Computers: Erotic Data Poetics, turns to Black womanist poetics to glean an alternative framework for collecting, analyzing, and using data. This project inspired riversides2106, a collaborative virtual reality choreography project thinking through the ways we embody and transmit data through the body.

I was the 2019 Mellon Editorial Fellow at Northwestern University Press, and a 2020 graduate of the Full-Stack Web Development Bootcamp at the Northwestern University School of Professional Studies. I have also written, designed, and built content for social media, institutional marketing campaigns, professional portfolio websites, e-commerce sites, and all kinds of scholarly projects.

I’m born and based on Chicago’s Southside. Definitely drinking herbal tea and playing 90’s R&B at this exact moment.
