Infrastructures for Cultural Analytics, Digital Humanities, Text Analysis, and NLP
I build tools and infrastructures for analyzing, collecting, and manipulating texts, so that we can better understand books and other textual cultures. Some of my recent projects have included Macro-Etym, a tool for analyzing the etymologies of a text; Text-Matcher, a text reuse detection tool, good at identifying when a text quotes from another; Corpus-DB, an API for Project Gutenberg and other text repositories; and Chapterize, a tool for splitting a book into its chapters. I also lead the Open-Editions project, which aims to produce richly-annotated editions of classic works of literature, and the Git-Lit project, which publishes the British Library's digital books through GitHub.
I'm a PhD candidate in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, where I work in the Literary Modeling and Visualization Lab of the Group for Experimental Methods in the Humanities. Our group has no funding of its own, and my graduate student funding is very modest, so donations (of money, cryptocurrency, and/or code) are deeply appreciated.
