I've been at West Chester University for four years, working as Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities and New Media in the Department of English.
I'm working with faculty across campus to build a digital Humanities and New Media program at WCU. Since joining WCU, my research has focused on using Digital Humanities
as undergraduate training and service projects centered on questions of local and national importance. Recent projects include the Black Students' Lives project,
investigating the forgotten histories of Black College students in Southeastern PA, and the Linked Lives Project, a sustainability and mapping project working to address
soil pollution in three Philadelphia neighborhoods.
Before joining WCU, I was on a Hosted Researcher visa at the Royal Irish Academy's Digital Humanities Observatory in Dublin, Ireland, where I worked on a serendipity discovery engine and Europeana data model in the Irish context. Before Ireland, I helped conceive and build the Center for Digital Humanities at South Carolina, serving as its founding Assistant (then Associate) Director with Prof. David Miller, a scholar of the renaissance and my Post-Doctoral supervisor.
