RESEARCH MENTORSHIP

The data visualizations behind coronavirus skepticism


Jonathan Zong and I ran an undergraduate research lab funded by the MIT Experiential Learning Opportunities program, where we worked with seven research assistants on a COVID-related data visualization project. These incredible collaborators are Anna Arpaci-Dusseau, Kat Huang, Anna Meurer, Soomin Chun, Mateo Monterde, Tanya Yang, and Ethan Nevidomsky.

Let's Go, Baby Forklift! + Viral Visualizations


I mentored 4 undergraduate students split between anthropology and computer science on projects related to Chinese cybernationalism (Vesper Long), COVID visualizations (Tanya Yang and Gaby Inchoco), and the history of braille (Zhirui Xiong).

DIGITAL HUMANITIES


I have experience developing digital humanities curricula for historians and archaeologists. At Harvard, I helped students produce a set of interactive maps that they hosted on their own website; these tutorials are roughly generalizable to any course in the humanities that tracks the movement of people, objects, or ideas. At Stanford, I wrote course and lecture outlines for topics like photogrammetry, 3D modeling, GIS, and more.


ARCHIVAL RESEARCH @ MIT


Here are some guides to doing research I wrote specifically for MIT students, which I used to guide discussions about the role of science and technology in history.
