Nina Rao, Audiovisual Conservator, Digitization and Digital Curation

“I’m looking forward to working with the collections and further developing my skills.” – Nina Rao

Nina Rao is the new audiovisual conservator in the Digitization and Digital Curation department. Before coming to Emory, she was at CARE USA, a nonprofit fighting global poverty, for three years.  As Archivist at CARE, she implemented a new collections management system and digital asset management infrastructure. Prior to CARE, she worked at UCLA Film & Television Archive for five years, mostly in Public Programs, where she ran a monthly film series and coordinated film bookings, rights clearances, and national tours of Archive restorations.

Born and raised in Framingham, MA (and consequently a diehard Red Sox fan), Nina earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and media studies from Tufts University as well as master’s degrees in moving image archive studies from UCLA and creative writing from the University of Arizona. 

In her spare time, Nina enjoys reading, baking, home-brewing beer, and spending time with her husband and pets (two cats and a puppy who is still learning to leave the cats alone). She was the captain of CARE’s bowling team and speaks a moderate amount of Portuguese, which she learned while practicing the Brazilian art of capoeira for several years.

“I’m very happy to be part of Emory,” says Nina. “The environment here is great, and it’s exciting to have the opportunity to work with such a wide range of audiovisual materials.  I’m looking forward to working with the collections and further developing my skills.”
