I am interested in how material and structural changes in the reproduction, storage and transmission of texts change the ways we read, write and learn. I have a Ph.D. in Italian Language and Literature. I am the inaugural Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Digital Humanities Lab at Yale University. There I lead two digital humanities projects – The Yale Community Voices Archive and Dante at Hand. While addressing different communities and disciplines, both of these projects leverage information technology to enhance and expand access to digitized and born-digital special collections.
At Yale, I helped coordinate the Digital Humanities Working Group, an interdisciplinary working group at the Whitney Humanities Center devoted to Yale’s growing digital humanities community. My current focus is on digital scholarship design and publishing in the humanities, data analysis and visualization, and the curation and deployment of linked open data in special collections.
When not working on information technology, the digital humanities, or medieval Italian literature, you will find me in Yale’s special collections, though at times I can be found on the beach in a small fishing village outside of Genoa, playing cards.
