Graduate Research Associate
Evan is currently a 3rd year student in the Texts & Technology PhD program here at UCF. He holds a Master’s degree in History from Appalachian State (2018) where he worked in the Digital Scholarship & Initiatives department, prior to that he got his Bachelor’s degree in History and Religious Studies from UCF in 2016. His technical background is in front-end web development, digital media creation (Adobe Creative Cloud), and web based analytics. In CHDR, Evan has been involved in the PRINT project based out of the department of history here at UCF. In addition, Evan has contributed various graphics, web content updates, and other maintenance related tasks to various projects in CHDR.
When not working for his vicious overlords in CHDR, Evan enjoys spending time with his wife and his cats Fyodor and Felix. His hobbies include reading, hydroponics, and spending far too much time on YouTube. Evan's research involves how individuals and groups use alternative and pseudo-histories online to assert enthocentric nationalistic identities in Eastern Europe. He is currently set to finish his PhD in Spring 2022. My Curriculum Vitae ↓
