My current projects investigate the varieties of cuneiform scribal practices, with special focus on the nature of translation as scholarly knowledge and the intersection and influence of various scribal corpora upon each other (for example, the use of lexical texts in literature or commentaries). My work utilizes the numerous Digital Assyriology projects available online (such as the ORACC consortium) and develops tools and technologies for analyzing these datasets.
