About Anne

I am the Director of Digital Scholarship at the Columbia University Libraries. I was previously at the University of Michigan where I was the Director of Digital Scholarship and faculty in the Digital Studies Institute and Asian Pacific-Islander/American Studies. I’m a principle of the SCRAM Collective. I’m also a writer of speculative fiction, have two dogs, two cats, and love to eat and feed people. I’m currently at work on my first novel.


Here are some selected publications. Enjoy!
