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 have been a Research Affiliate and member of the Digital Premodern Workshop with the Center for Premodern Studies. I am also Treasurer of the Haskins Society, which currently holds its annual conference at the University of Richmond each November.


At Carleton since 2015.
