We are pleased to welcome Thomas Padilla to the dh+lib editorial team as a Contributing Editor.
As Digital Scholarship Librarian at Michigan State University Libraries, Thomas develops and promotes data collections to Humanists, teaches on Digital Humanities methods and tools, and engages scholars across disciplines on data curation and research data management needs. Previously, Thomas worked at the Scholarly Commons and the Preservation Unit of the University Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and at the Library of Congress, where his work focused on digital preservation outreach and education.
Thomas will be editing a new Data Praxis series, highlighting a range of perspectives on the practice of digitally inflected research, pedagogy, curation, and collection building and augmentation. The first post in that series, an interview with Matthew Lincoln (University of Maryland), was published this past week.
