Joshua Neumann (Ph.D. 2016, University of Florida) is a Digital Musicologist at the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz. He was previously a Lecturer in the University of Florida’s Innovation Academy, an interdisciplinary program focused on creativity and entrepreneurship across all fields.  His work uses a variety of interdisciplinary and digital methods from data science, sociology, and information science in the study of performance practice, 19th-century Italian opera, and (more recently) Renaissance motets. Complementary interests include machine learning, music encoding, and ethical considerations of digital scholarship. Two current projects include Creating Die Winterreise in Performance with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and the development of an open-source online forum for the analysis of opera as a series of creative processes and histories. Publications have appeared in Empirical Musicology Review, Proceedings of Digital Libraries for Musicology, MLA Notes, Music Reference Services Quarterly, with a forthcoming article in Frontiers in Performance Science.
