Biography

I began my career in "dynamic scene analysis", a subarea of computer vision and image processing. In the last several years I have been associated with "digital humanities" scholars at UVa and elsewhere in a wide variety of projects in archaeology, literary studies, history, endangered languages, Tibetan studies, architecture, art history, religious studies and media studies.
