Research overview

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.

PhD supervision

We are interested in PhD proposals from anyone with an interest in using computing for research in any discipline across the humanities. Personally I have a particular interest in using GIS to research history, demography, English or related areas.

Any area associated with Digital Humanities (or Humanities Computing) but in particular the use of GIS in history or another humanities discipline.

Current Teaching

  • Hist426 - Digital approaches to the Humanities
  • FASS525 - Geographical Information Systems in the Humanities and Social Sciences
