I'm a PhD student (English Dept) working, in general terms, on Malcolm Lowry's early response to influence. Outside of my thesis work, my research interests include representations of texts within texts, digital approaches to annotation, and the work of Jorge Luis Borges, whose short story "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius" was the focus of my MA. Before I left NZ to start my PhD in Sydney, I worked on a web-based annotation project for Lowry's novel Under the Volcano at the University of Otago (www.otago.ac.nz/english/lowry) – it's currently just basic html in a framed browser, but it's a start!

I have passable html and xml editing skills, though I'm always looking both to improve them and find new contexts for web-based humanities projects.
