    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal article

    My research interests include:

    I am a geographer by training and have spent much of my career working applying Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to historical research, a field that has become known as Historical GIS. As a result of the growth of Digital Humanities, I have become particularly interested in using GIS with texts as well as the more traditional quantitative sources. This is the subject of the European Research Council grant Spatial Humanities: Texts, GIS, Places that I currently hold. For much more on my research see my personal website.
