Joshua Neumann (Ph.D. 2016, University of Florida) is 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 a multi-volume edited collection of essays engaging “Opera in the Digital Age” 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.
