Alongside Leif Isaksen, I co-lead the Digital Humanities Lab at Exeter. The Lab’s mission is to embed digital methods into research and teaching across the College of Humanities at Exeter, and to provide a hub for exchange of ideas, methods teaching and research excellence. The Lab has specialisms in a range of DH fields, including geospatial applications, text encoding/editing, 2D and 3D imaging, and data sustainability & preservation.
I was born in Mexico City and currently live in Tacoma, WA where I am an Associate Professor of English at Pacific Lutheran University (PLU).

I am a linguist who works on language contact and change, particularly in the Pacific and Australia, and how new digital tools and techniques allow us to research these in new ways. My research interests span historical and contact linguistics, typology, and digital humanities areas, especially relating to mapping, simulation, language, virtual reality, and data visualisation. I have carried out fieldwork in the Cook Islands, East Timor and Indonesia. I co-lead the Intergenerate Living Lab at Western Sydney University, where we work across generations, forms of expertise and places in co-research, design and testing of digital initiatives to foster the resilience of people and communities to live well and participate fully in social life. I am also a member of the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development, and the Centre of Excellence for Language Dynamics. I am the Treasurer for the Australasian Association of Digital Humanities and the NSW coordinator for the Australian Computational and Linguistics Olympiad.

My research and teaching coalesce around the literary and cultural study of science and medicine, exploring the narratives that shape understandings of illness, health, disability, and embodiment. My book manuscript, “Our Microbes: Imagining Human Interdependence with Bacteria in American Literature, Science, and Culture, 1880-1930,” merges my background in microbiology and literary studies to examine the diverse representations of microorganisms in the years between the popularization of germ theory and the widespread use of antibiotics.
