I am a white, queer, able-bodied settler and Canada Research Chair in Digital Humanities in the Department of Communication at the University of Ottawa, where I lead the Labo de Données en Sciences Humaines/Humanities Data Lab. In addition to Digital Humanities, my research interests include queer history, Victorian visual and popular culture, prosopography, and code as a representative medium.
I am co-director, with Michelle Schwartz, of the Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada project, and a researcher with Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE, PI Ray Siemens), Linked Infrastructure for Networked Cultural Scholarship (LINCS, PI Susan Brown) the Transgender Media Portal (TMP, PI Laura Horak). I also serve as associate director of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria. I received my PhD in Communication and Culture from York University in Toronto, Ontario. I live and work on unceded Algonquin land.
