    • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    I have just started as a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I will be working on applications of digitized text (especially the HathiTrust project's initiatives) for humanities research. I did my PhD in Comparative Literature at the University of Michigan, and I also earned master's degrees in Computer Science and in Information Science, also from the University of Michigan. I am generally interested in Digital Humanities, and specifically in text mining and in "distant-reading" of text using large corpora.
