While earning her MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts, (Duke University) she was a teaching assistant for Information Science + Studies (Web Multimedia), Experimental Film (Matters of Life and Death), and Cathy Davidson’s groundbreaking Coursera MOOC, The History (and Future) of Higher Education. She was the creator of as well as a participant in various WIRED! courses, including computational media (Szabo) and the NHC DH Triangle Practicum (Olson). She has also worked as a web assistant for the Center for Documentary Studies and a marketing assistant for the MFA|EDA program at Duke University.

Michael Newton comes to digital humanities work with strong qualifications in both information technology and the humanities. His first degree is a B.A. in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego, which he earned while working at a popular computer game company. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in Celtic Studies at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and has published extensively in that field. In 2007 he was awarded a Digital Humanities Initiative grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a digital collaboratory for Celtic Studies which was hosted for several years by iBiblio. In the summer of 2013, he began working on a new digital humanities project, entitled Celtic Poets of North America, which is an attempt to collect data about poets and poetry composed in Celtic languages, and enable searches and visualizations on that data.
