Rachel Murphy
Hello! My name is Rachael Murphy. I use they/them pronouns. I grew up in Massachusetts, but I completed my undergraduate degree at New College in Sarasota, Florida. My Bachelor’s degree is in Humanities. Fun fact: I wrote my thesis on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead! With a degree in Information Sciences, I hope to investigate the relationship between information access and systems of power and oppression. However, I would also love to work at the Titanic Museum or any institution concerned with dinosaurs!
