I study English literature (mostly from the early-ninteenth and late-twentieth centuries) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While I am currently training to perform literary criticism, I am also heavily involved with the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities. It is perhaps sufficient to say that my interests lie in the realm of information science and its relevance to humanities research. In particular, I am trying to apply my training in computer science to relevant domains within the humanities. My current projects involve performing experiments in topic modeling to think about text-encoding and the kind of textual information that literary studies would benefit from having metamarked.
When I’m not scavenging textual collections, I write about computer science and waste culture.
