Short Bio

I’m a historian and hacker who researches the possibilities and politics of digital cultural collections. I’ve been creating online resources relating to archives, museums and history since 1993, including Bright Sparcs, Mapping our Anzacs, QueryPic, and The Real Face of White Australia. I’m currently half of the Trove management team at the National Library of Australia, and Associate Professor of Digital Heritage at the University of Canberra. I’m a member of the THATCamp Council, an organiser of THATCamp Canberra, and a member of the committee of the Australasian Association for the Digital Humanities.
