Trinity College Dublin


I began my professional career as a traditional scholar of German Literature, but rather lost faith in my work in this discipline due to its small audience and impact. I hopped over the alt-ac fence after about a decade and began supporting technical projects in the humanities. Another ten years later and I seem to be on my way back over the fence, researching and writing on the developments in a number of EU-funded projects I coordinate or participate in.
