About the author

I am an academic book historian and a digital humanist. I am equally interested in how texts came into existence in books, and in how digital culture is changing the nature of the book (and much else besides). My interests include ballads, broadsides, chapbooks, typefaces, printers’ woodblocks, diagrams, copyright and book trade history.This website contains links to a number of my research projects, which are mostly digital in nature.

I am currently Digital Humanities Research Fellow for the Seebibyte project in the Department of Engineering Sciences at the University of Oxford. I also teach digital humanities at University College London.
