I am a Ph.D. student in Art History at the University of Maryland, College Park. I focus on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century northern European art, with a particular concentration in digital research and analysis techniques. I am interested in the potential for computer-aided analysis of cultural datasets to help model long-term artistic trends in iconography, art markets, and social relations between artists in the early modern period. My present research employs computational social network analysis to help understand the long-term changes in the relationships between print designers, engravers, and publishers in the Netherlands between 1500–1800. For the 2014 academic year I will be the University of Maryland Museum Fellow at the Office of Northern Baroque Paintings at the National Gallery of Art.
