Research and Partnership Manager
Christy frames and tells the stories of our research – its technical achievements and broader impacts – to diverse audiences through myriad methods, from research articles to metadata. She also manages the relationships with all our stakeholders, including philanthropic donors, foundations, student researchers, collaborating academics, partner institutions, and media representatives. Her work includes mentoring students in the process of producing and disseminating research results; writing and editing articles, lectures, grant proposals, website pages, and other communication vehicles; managing our digital assets, including metadata development; and working with legal to develop proper contractual agreements. Her current research focuses on creating metadata tools that provide comprehensive digital provenance for all of our born-digital products, thereby engendering confidence in their status as objects for scholarly study.
