DH 2014 portraitI'm Quinn.

I'm the Academic Technology Specialist in the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages at Stanford University. Previously, I've worked in Research IT at UC Berkeley, and in Academic Technologies at the University of Chicago. My background is in Slavic linguistics and library and information science, but my major interest is in making research and scholarly communication work better. To help facilitate that in the humanities, I've written a book, Drupal for Humanists, published by Texas A&M Press as the first in the Coding for Humanists series, which I co-edit.

I sew all my own clothes, and try to match my outfits to my meetings, classes, talks, etc. I've taken at least one photo of something beautiful every day since August 29, 2007 and have over 100,000 Creative Commons licensed photos posted on Flickr.
