I received my PhD in sociology from the University of California, Berkeley. I have an MA from UC Berkeley and a BA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Digital Humanities @ Berkeley, developing a course for undergraduates on computational text analysis in the humanities and social sciences. I use computational methods and open source tools, principally automated text analysis, to study social movements, culture, gender, institutions, and organizations.

Our Text Thresher software will enable digital humanities researchers to enlist the help of crowd workers and volunteers so they can scale-up traditional ‘content analysis’ projects to identify and extract complex information from thousands (or even millions) of documents and/or web pages.
