I will be, in September 2019, director of digital humanities and clinical associate professor of history at New York University. Currently, I’m an assistant professor of history at Northeastern University and core faculty in the NuLab for Texts, Maps, and Networks.
I use humanistic data analysis and data visualization to help people think about the American past in new ways. My primary current project is Creating Data, a digital monograph about the organization of information in the American state in the late 19th century. I also write occasionally about higher education (teaching evaluations and humanities policy), narrative anachronism and [plot structure], and political history.
At Northeastern, I teach classes in the history department and honors college on US history, digital history, and the history of “big data” at the graduate and undergraduate level.
I live in Manhattan.
