Welcome!

I am a graduate student in English (PhD, 2019) and Computer Science (MS, 2018) at Yale University. This site contains my blog and live drafts of my current research projects. As a literary historian, I study how "practical education" and mass-produced media shaped each other in the early nineteenth century. Within computer science, I'm interested in techniques for extracting and clustering historical book illustrations. I am the course manager for CPSC 201 and I try to stay active with functional programming and at the intersection of signal processing and art.

Feel free to write me at firstname dot lastname at yale dot edu. I am interested in the conversations and accountability that may arise from making all my research public in real time. This is what I look like (click for full size image).
