Scott D. Dexter is a computer scientist who seeks collaborations and connections in the humanities and social sciences. His most satisfying projects are collaborations: for example, he has worked with a philosopher (studying free and open source software), a psychologist (studying the creative process in programmers) and dramatic/literary historians (producing a digital transcription of a 19th-century actor’s diary, published both as a physical book and a digital edition).

He is committed to making computer science welcoming and interesting to students of every background, especially those who think computer science isn’t for them!
