I’m currently a Project Officer at EDINA, a national data centre and centre for digital excellence at the University of Edinburgh. I work on bibliographic and multimedia projects, and I’m responsible for managing the Statistical Accounts of Scotland, a service that makes a set of over 900 fascinating historical texts available for researchers to search, analyse and engage with online.
I also teach at the University of Edinburgh, where I contribute to courses on Book History and Literature. I was previously an AHRC Research Fellow at the Centre for the History of the Book. Prior to joining the department in Edinburgh, I was an AHRC-funded Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the project Poetry Beyond Text: Vision, Text and Cognition at the University of Dundee.
My research has engaged with a number of different fields, including book history, poetics, material culture, new media and technology studies, archive and information studies and cognitive science. I’m particularly interested in the potential of Digital Humanities methods, particularly network analysis, digital editing and TEI.
