I am an Assistant Professor of Humanities Analytics in the Data Analytics program at Denison University (beginning fall 2020). Prior to that, I was a Clinical Assistant Professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh, and Director of the department’s Digital Media Lab, for five years (2015-2020). From 2012 to 2013, I was a Council for Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellow with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Digital Research in the Humanities. From 2013 to 2015, I was Associate Program Coordinator of a Mellon-funded digital humanities initiative at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY titled “Crossing Boundaries: Re-envisioning the Humanities for the 21st Century.”
My scholarship focuses on intersections of book history and cultural analytics methods. I maintain a tagged/searchable collection of links to open datasets for the humanities at https://humanitiesdata.com, as well as a resource page for humanities analytics teaching and research at https://humanitiesanalytics.com. My scholarship has appeared in ‘The Journal of Cultural Analytics’, ‘Digital Scholarship in the Humanities’ (formerly ‘LLC’), and ‘The Programming Historian’, among others.
