839 Greene St.
I am a librarian and head of publishing production for MPublishing, the primary academic publishing enterprise of the University of Michigan, which includes the University of Michigan Press and other imprints and services. I have long been involved in the activities of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium, including serving on the Technical Council and serving as the founding managing editor of the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative, and I sometimes pretend to be an expert on copyright law.
I have worked at U-M since early 2004, except for two leaves of absence: one to accept a Fulbright grant to work with digital libraries in Russia and another to accept a temporary position as visiting metadata manager at the Digital Humanities Observatory, a project of the Royal Irish Academy. I have BAs in Russian and linguistics from the University of Maryland and an MS in library and information science from the University of Illinois.
