Currently, I am a Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow of Digital Humanities at Dickinson College. Previous to this position, I was a digital editorial assistant for the Modernist Versions Project where last year I scanned, OCRed, and uploaded high resolution images and searchable PDFs of James Joyce's 1922 edition of Ulysses (just as it came out of copyright). Before that, I managed the staff of the Modernist Journals Project (MJP), where I used ABBYY Finereader 9.0, an optical-character-recognition software, to convert scanned images of early twentieth-century magazines, like Margaret Anderson’s The Little Review and Ezra Pound’s The Egoist, into searchable PDF files. I have attended multiple digital workshops and the digital humanities summer institute at Victoria B. C. on TEI, Topic Modeling, and creating digital editions.
