Digital Humanities lays at the intersection of computing or digital technologies and the disciplines of the humanities. A great chance for us – the datavis people – to get access to, to work with and to learn from data and information that might be hidden in cultural corpora.

He is a Ph.D. candidate in Design at Politecnico di Milano and he is conducting a research about visual tools for cultural institutions within DensityDesign Research Lab. Currently, he is working on his thesis project at Urban Complexity Lab at FH Potsdam.
