Hi. I’m Galen.
I’m a digital humanist. I build tools to help understand human culture.
I did an MPhil in Early Modern English Theatre at the University of Adelaide, worked as an analyst for a while, and now I’m doing a PhD at the Australian National University in machine learning and literary reception studies.
I spend most of my time thinking about how we can make social science and cultural studies more rigorous, scalable, and data-driven. My spare time is spent running, angsting about AI ethics, playing backgammon, and building weird internet stuff with people I admire.
You should totally email me.
