As Digital Scholarship Librarian, Alex Gil is part of a community of innovators who are changing the world through socially-conscious technologies.
The Libraries are an inclusive “hub” of interdisciplinary activity, according to Marii Nyrop, who often collaborates across fields of study as a developer on the Digital Library & Scholarly Technologies team.
“I’m Alex Gil and I collaborate with faculty, students and colleagues on scholarly and archival projects involving advanced use of technology. My expertise includes the work of the humanities writ-large, experimental computing, Caribbean surrealist poetry and global flows of knowledge. My favorite part of my job in the Libraries is coming up with elegant and imaginative solutions to stubborn problems and mentoring future scholar-librarians.”
