I’m interested in the intersection of the humanities and technology. The humanities have been asking key questions about how technology shapes the world. Through digital humanities, research in the humanities can leverage new methods to push existing conversations in multiple fields and facilitate new interdisciplinary ones.

I’m a digital humanist trained in Latin American and Caribbean studies now enjoying the chance to be a bit of a generalist and collaborate with brilliant scholars.

Recent examples of collaborative work include the modeling of interdisciplinary work in DH, CS, and periodical studies. With Ben Lee, Sarah Salter, and Jim Casey.
