Interests

Using Linked (Open) Data and semantic web technologies to support and diversify scholarship in the Digital Humanities. Empowering researchers by demystifying technological practicalities, providing training, and disseminating information about tooling and software. Interdisciplinary research agendas. Ontologies. Background in ancient history and GLAM, lover of games, also keep stumbling into music.

Research

I'm part of the Centre for Digital Humanities Research at Australian National University. I'm the course convenor and lecturer on our Digital Humanities courses, and end up talking about a range of interdisciplinary topics from digital culture to critical evaluation and digital literacy. In my research, I look at using Linked Data and semantic web technologies as a way of answering research questions in the humanities. I enjoy knowledge representation and ontologies in particular. I work on a bunch of different projects, building on my PhD thesis (which looked at ancient Sumerian literature and my postdoc, which I did at Oxford University's e-Research Centre(and where I worked on the Transforming Musicology and ElePHaT projects). 

Early 2017, we're going to be launching our new Digital Humanities Lab, which allow students and staff alike to dabble with many different kinds of projects, ranging from reflectance transformation imaging to 3D scanning, from text encoding to geospatial mapping, app development, playing with Raspberry Pis, and just about everything else in between. I'm very eager to give everyone the opportunity to get some practical experience on top theoretical knowhow, and to dispel any fears and internal demons researchers might have about engaging with the digital.
