By trade, I'm a historian of early modern Britain and a digital historian, and since 2006 I've managed several large digital history projects. I’m an enthusiast for open history data; I play with databases and write terrible code.
This website is a playground and a repository, where I want to bring together digital history and data science while working on writing better code (mostly in R, using Rmarkdown, and maybe some Python). All code and data will be shared here and/or on Github.
