Recent projects include the “Fort Vancouver Mobile” and The Grand Emporium of the West,” projects funded by a 2011 NEH Start Up grant and a 2012 “We the People” grant, respectively, that focuses on location-aware nonfiction content for mobile phones to be used at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.

Her next project is a mobile app created with faculty at the University of British Columbia Okanagan for the University of Alberta's Devonian Botanical Garden, funded by a $198K grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in Canada.
