I joined the Information School as a Librarianship student in 2017. Then in 2018 I was awarded a scholarship to research the web archiving needs of activist archivists in the UK in response to the increasingly digital nature of social movements.

I am on the organising group of the Sheffield Feminist Archive who document the lives and experiences of self-identifying women in the Sheffield area.

I am also a trustee of the Society for Cooperation in Russian and Soviet Studies, a library, archive, and cultural hub in London where I previously volunteered as the art librarian.

Teaching activities

I am a teacher on the Librarianship and Information Management programmes. In semester one I am contributing to the Information Literacy, and Information Organisation modules.

Professional activities and memberships

I am a member of the Association of Internet Researchers and Association for Information Science and Technology.
