I'm a English Lit Ph.D. student at the University of Maryland interested in the digital humanities, James Joyce/Ulysses, (hyper)textual analysis, and games/puzzles/discovery in complex novels. I'm currently on a UMD research team studying both the ARG design process and ARGs in education.
A web designer and recent Master of (the Science of) Information (!) via the University of Michigan, I wrote my master's thesis on designing scholarly digital texts to reach "amateur" learners, and I'm interested in building digital texts that help self-motivated learners enjoy more complex literary works (e.g. my Ulysses digital text prototype at http://www.UlyssesUlysses.com).
