Abe Gibson

Post-Doctoral Researcher

Abe Gibson is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, where he is co-PI on an NSF grant that provides immersive training in computational methods of historical research. Working alongside Manfred Laubichler and Jane Maienschein, Abe co-edited a collection of papers on computational history and philosophy of science for the journal Isis (September 2019), and he co-authored an article in the same issue placing the computational turn in social, cultural, and historiographical context. With funding from a second NSF grant, Abe has developed educational resources to help introduce historians of science to computational methods. He is an advocate for greater algorithmic accountability, and his current research examines the intersections of race, gender, and digital technologies.
