I’ve been a library assistant in special collections cataloging at the Getty Research Institute since March 2011, processing the papers and drawings of architects Ray Kappe and William Krisel. I have a B.A. in architectural history from Columbia University, and I am currently a second year student in the Master of Historic Preservation program at the University of Southern California. My research interests include the California Arts and Crafts movement, midcentury modernism and culture in Los Angeles, and more recent developments of cultural heritage and preservation movements in ethnic enclaves.
I’m a library assistant in special collections cataloging at the Getty Research Institute. I’m responsible for processing and cataloging two collections of architecture records, the papers and drawings of Los Angeles architects Ray Kappe and William Krisel. I recently completed a master’s degree in Library and Information Science at the University of California, Los Angeles, with a specialization in archival studies. I also hold a Ph.D. in architectural history from Emory University and have taught art and architectural history for almost a decade.
