My research and teaching specialties are at the intersection of digital methodologies and medieval history. I use digital methods like text mining, spatial history and network analysis to explore conflict in medieval European history, and my history-pedagogy research makes similar use of these approaches. I am also the PI on Net.Create, an NSF-funded exploration of network analysis in history reading comprehension. Together with Michelle Dalmau, I co-direct the Institute for Digital Arts & Humanities, which provides digital-methods and digital-pedagogy consulting and research services to the Indiana University-Bloomington arts & humanities community. Prior to returning to the scholarly world, I spent ten years managing Web sites and the technical and creative people responsible for creating those Web sites.
