I’m a doctoral candidate in English at the University of Victoria, Canada, the Assistant Director (Open Knowledge Initiatives) of the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL), and Associate Director of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). My research interests include geospatial methodologies, open scholarship, platform studies, and early modern studies.
As Assistant Director (Open Knowledge Initiatives) of the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab, I lead the Open Knowledge Program and have helped strategize research plans for 30+ digital projects to date. I am also actively engaged in open scholarship activities across the research, teaching, and service aims of the ETCL.
In 2015, I co-founded the Digital Humanities Institute Beirut, the first digital humanities institute in the Arab world, and am the Managing Editor of Early Modern Digital Review, the first journal to systematically review digital projects that study the early modern world.
