I work at the intersection of computing, philology, and linguistics both as an independent scholar and as a software developer working on digital humanities projects with other scholars.

My interests include morphology (theoretical, computational, and historical), Indo-European linguistics, Linguistic Linked Open Data, text encoding and annotation of historical language corpora (especially Ancient Greek but also Old English and Old Norse), machine-actionable language description, computer-aided historical language learning (especially Ancient Greek but also Old English and Old Norse).


I have qualifications in General Linguistics, Ancient Greek, Germanic Philology, Educational Measurement, and Music Theory.
