What I do
I'm a professor in information science, focusing on large-scale text analysis and crowdsourcing.
Prior to the University of Denver, I served as a post-doctoral research associate at the HathiTrust Research Center. My PhD is in Library and Information Science (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), with an MA in Humanities Computing and Library and Information Studies (University of Alberta).
