I teach courses in history and digital humanities and work with students, faculty and staff to build a robust Digital Humanities program that fosters both digital scholarship and pedagogy on campus. Prior to coming to Carleton, I taught in the history department at the University of Minnesota, where I am a Research Affiliate in the Center for Medieval Studies and a member of the Digital Premodern Workshop and others at the Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World. I am also a councillor of the Haskins Society, which currently holds its annual conference at UNC-Chapel Hill each November.


At Carleton since 2015.
