I just started as an Assistant Professor in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern. For 2016-2017 I am on leave as a postdoctoral fellow at Digital Humanities @ Berkeley and the Berkeley Institute for Data Science.
Previously I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Management and Organizations Department in the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and was a research affiliate at the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems.
I am an open source and open science enthusiast. I seek to use open-source tools and computational methods to make the interpretive social sciences and the humanities more reliable, reproducible, and scalable.
