I am a PhD student in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

I study survey methods and user interfaces for survey instruments. I also work in conducting humanities research through digital or computational means.

I am interested in technological and programming education using open source tools and teach in this area. I will also begin teaching a introduction course on Human Information Interactions this Fall semester.

I have a background in system administration which mostly now expresses itself through hobby automation and system building. These interests are currently expressed in my hobbies, which are increasingly technical and mostly related to home automation.

If you wish to contact me, the best way is to send me a tweet (@jdmar3) or email me.
