Senior Research Software Analyst, King's Digital Lab, KCL
King's College London
Neil came to the Department of Digital Humanities as a Research Developer in 2011 to contribute to the new spatial turn in DH research. With a background in environmental analysis, spatial statistics and experience in commercial development, his interests within the department soon broadened. Neil has served as the digital lead on a number of projects, most recently collaborating with the University of Wales to create a database of archaeological and palaeo-linguistic information to address questions of the origin and development of the Celtic language in the Bronze Age with the ‘Atlantic Europe in the Metal Ages’ project. He also created a text and manuscript comparison tool to enable study of the vectors of transmission of French textual traditions for the project ‘Medieval Francophone Literary Culture Outside France.’ His current role within King’s Digital Lab involves cultivating new projects and relationships in the digital community and beyond as a Project Analyst. Outside of the lab, Neil is a keen photographer, guitarist and climber.
