As Digital Scholarship Coordinator, based jointly in the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA) and the Stanford University Libraries’ Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Reserach (CIDR), I support research and teaching in computational social sciences and digital humanities for the Stanford community along with other specialists. I also support CESTA’s projects and publications by leveraging the Libraries’ infrastructure and expertise. Additionally, I am responsible for maintaining and developing the Libraries’ digital humanities collection. Prior to joining Stanford Libraries, I was a program manager at U-C Santa Cruz and before that, I was the Digital Scholarship Librarian at the University of Michigan Library.
