David Roh


Associate Professor of English

I’ve been at the University of Utah since 2015, and was appointed to a four-year term as director of Digital Matters in 2018. My research and teaching interests lie in digital humanities, new media studies, and Asian American literature. As director, I’m responsible for communicating with upper administration and our campus stakeholders, building policy and programming, and raising our profile on a national level through projects, grants, and teaching.


Rebekah Cummings

Digital Matters Librarian

I’ve been a librarian at the Marriott Library since 2013 and have served in a variety of roles, first as the Assistant Director of the Mountain West Digital Library (2013-2015) and later as the Data Management Librarian (2015-2018). In March 2018, I started my new position as the Digital Matters Librarian where I work closely with the Digital Matters Director and Postdoc to coordinate digital humanities research, instruction, and support at the U. My research interests are data management, digital humanities, intellectual property, and digital libraries, with particular interest where these areas of study overlap. I completed my MLIS from the University of California, Los Angeles where I was a graduate student researcher on Dr. Christine Borgman’s Knowledge Infrastructures Team.


Elizabeth Callaway

Postdoctoral Scholar

I’ve been the Digital Matters Postdoctoral Fellow since January 2018. I research and teach at the intersections of environmental humanities, digital humanities, and new media studies, although I am partial to science fiction as well. At Digital Matters, I coordinate the Research Interest Group, consult with faculty and students about digital projects, assist with the day-to-day operations of Digital Matters, and teach in the Honors College. I completed my PhD in English at the University of California Santa Barbara in 2016.
