My research focuses on massive-scale text analysis as well as data issues in crowdsourcing. Most recently, I've been working on scholarly access to the millions of digitized books at the HathiTrust Research Center.
I hold a PhD in Library and Information Science (UIUC) and an MA in Humanities Computing-Library and Information Studies (Alberta), and have received paper awards from the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) and the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T). My collaborative work in the digital humanities has won a joint Outstanding Contribution Award from the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities.
- I write about text mining and crowdsourcing at Sense and Sentences.
- Data and code for research projects, as well as miscellanies, is at Github.
