His dissertation research seeks to understand the technical dimensions of the practice of history in early China, and he is in the process of creating an experimental digital edition of an early Chinese historical work, the first-century Han shu, in collaboration with the Mark Twain Papers and Project with support from the DH at Berkeley Collaborative Research Grants. Through DH at Berkeley and the D-Lab, he offers general consulting in digital humanities and specialized consulting in digital editions and the XML ecosystem, and he teaches workshops about these topics here on campus and at DHSI in Victoria.
