She will also continue to work simultaneously in her role as the Senior Curator of Architecture and Design.
“As the Museum continues to augment and enhance its digital strategy across the organization, its research and development activities will foster an environment that encourages critical analysis and new ideas about the way culture, and museums in particular, live, operate, and are experienced online and in person," says Glenn D. Lowry, director, MoMA.
Her initial duties as Director of Research will be to apply findings related to digital initiatives, potential partnerships, research related to interpretative materials for visitors, and modes of expansions for curated and educational programs.
