Don't be shy: we're eager to hear from you

We'd love to hear about your digital humanities project ideas. Please contact either of us at the addresses listed below, and we'll get back to you promptly.

Julia Damerow

I am a software engineer with a degree in computer science, and a PhD in Biology (History and Philosophy of Science). I research the application of data mining tools and computation to the field of history and philosophy of science. I am the Head of Development and co-founder of the Digital Innovation Group at Arizona State University. As such, I manage agile software development projects and direct the design, implementation, and testing of multi-tier software applications and RESTful web services. I have a strong understanding of object-oriented design and programming (OOD/OOP) and 8 years of Java programming experience in developing software using frameworks such as the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (Eclipse RCP), Spring 3 and JSF.

Erick Peirson

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Laubichler Lab at Arizona State University, where I study the historical and conceptual foundations of 20th-century ecology and evolutionary theory from a computational perspective. I received my PhD in Biology (Biology & Society) from ASU in 2015. I believe that programming and software engineering are core components of the scholarly tool-kit.

Together with Julia Damerow and Manfred Laubichler, in 2012 I co-founded the Digital Innovation Group at ASU. The mission of the Digital Innovation Group is to develop new tools to support HPS researchers in processing and analyzing their data, to contribute to the development of a computational research system for history and philosophy of science, and to create new educational resources, opportunities, and experiences for students in computer science and the history and philosophy of science.
