I am an assistant professor of history at Northeastern University and core faculty in the NuLab for Texts, Maps, and Networks.
I use humanistic data analysis and data visualization to help people think about the American past in new ways. My primary current project is Creating Data, a digital monograph about the organization of information in the American state in the late 19th century. I also write occasionally about higher education (teaching evaluations and humanities policy), narrative anachronism and [plot structure], and political history.
At Northeastern, I teach classes in the history department and honors college on US history, digital history, and the history of “big data” at the graduate and undergraduate level.
I live in Manhattan.
