About & contact
I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Postdigital Cultures, Coventry University (UK), and a member of the Post-Publishing research theme. My research interests are, amongst others, more diverse and equitable futures for Open Access publishing; collaborative research, writing, editing, and publishing cultures and practices; open scholarship; expanded notions of accessibility; experimental monograph publishing in the humanities; genealogies of Open Access publishing; and intersectional feminist critiques of internationalised knowledge creation and dissemination. I did a PhD titled Reading Differently: Expanding Open Access Definitions Towards Greater Knowledge Equity at the Centre for Postdigital Cultures and studied art history, business administration, and modern history at the University of Zurich (CH).
I am also a researcher on the Open Book Futures (OBF) research project; a co-convener of the Radical Open Access Collective; a co-editor of the Combinatorial Books: Gathering Flowers experimental book series with Open Humanities Press; and a an editorial board member of continent. journal. I also consult and support early career researchers in exploring more collaborative, horizontal, and open approaches towards publishing their monographs. Previously, I was a Research Associate at WP6: Experimental Publishing, Re-use, and Impact of the Coventry University based COPIM (Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs) research project and a member of Jisc's Open Research Advisory Board.
My previous work as a writer; managing editor; a writing tutor and thesis supervisor at the MA Studio for Immediate Spaces, Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam where I developed critical publishing as a learning environment for students to discuss societally relevant questions – such as who participates in knowledge creation on whose terms, and who owns knowledge – and to acquire various communication, publishing, and technological skills through collaborative work on publications; a visiting professor at diverse universities; curator; and researcher evolved at the intersections of experimental publishing, art, design, architecture, and the humanities. I am a founding member of DA Institut, as well as a member and former co-director of Depot Basel.
