Hi @jezcope and all. Now i am with you, downloaded the app 🤭 will catch up with the roadmap tomorrow morning.
Re. About myself 👋; i work at British Library as a community engagement lead (i know that is a fancy and scary title but wait) for the Advancing Hyku (open source repository software) project. I am 0.5 at BL and that’s why i am involved in other repository projects in some other organisations. I thought i can be useful as facilitator and might be able to provide feedback for the workshop program. More importantly i can also learn more about data science while working, exchanging ideas with you.
Hello all, excited to be here, this is quite a niche field and I'm glad this network exists. I am Jajwalya (she/her), a Computational Sciences graduate student at George Mason University, interested in Digital Humanities research. I currently am working on a paper publication on "Computational Pattern Analysis of Linear A, an ancient Greek language using NLP and Knowledge Mining techniques" and the "Visualization & Simulation of the Ancient Silk Route". My experience include the following roles: Data Science internship at the National Gallery of Art, Digital Scholarship Graduate Research Assistantship at GMU Libraries, and now I am the Geo-Spatial Visualization Intern at the National Park Services. I have documented my projects at JajAndTheDigitalHumanities.com
I am hoping to connect and learn more on the field, especially from a Digital Humanities in GLAM spaces perspective in the industry, and Digital Scholarship practices in academia.
I also see @mbennett-uoe & @peterneish lurking: feel free to let us know a bit more about your interests!
Hi Jez and everyone else, finally got the time to get around to introducing myself! I'm Mike Bennett, the Digital Scholarship Developer with the University of Edinburgh Digital Library team. I hope to be able to contribute some technical assistance to the network, as well as gain some useful insight into ways that we as an institution can support usage of our GLAM data.
A good chunk of my work involves supporting the use of our collections holdings for data science / computational analysis - covering both thinking about/developing ways to make our collections data more accessible and usable, as well as providing technical assistance & coding to academic projects across the university (recently a paper for one of them, Plague.TXT was published in the Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities: https://jdmdh.episciences.org/7105).
Now to work out which Matrix client is the best fit for Mint 20.1 so I can actually catch up with conversations here without having to open Gitter in the browser!
