Adam G. Anderson is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities. Serving on the Academic Advisory Board for Digital Humanities at Berkeley, he is co-author and designer of the Theory and Methods curriculum for the DIGHUM Minor. His work brings together the fields of computational linguistics, archaeology and Assyriology / Sumerology to quantify the social and economic landscapes emerging during the Bronze Age in the ancient Near East. His research interests include network analysis, archival studies, geospatial mapping and language modeling (NLP). He applies these mixed methods to large datasets of ancient texts and archaeological records, in order to better understand the lives of individuals and groups within ancient societies, and to relate these findings within the context of our lives today.
