I graduated with a Ph.D. in English from the University of Toronto in 1997; my dissertation was titled "The Critical Heritage of the York Cycle." From medieval drama, my interests moved to early printed books when I was employed with the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies from 2002-2008, and during this period I also studied part-time for a Masters of Information Studies. By the time I graduated in June 2009, my interest in old books had broadened once more into Digital Humanities and the questions and issues raised by shifting the predominant medium of communication for a whole culture all at once.

What I'm Working On:
I do a lot of research relevant to my work at the JHI. This year I am thinking about how the humanities disciplines are using technology to support their research endeavours, and how graduates of the Ph.D. in humanities disciplines can adapt to a changing job market. I also follow the work of our Fellows, which includes an amazingly wide range of topics.
