Joseph Dexter is a Neukom Fellow at Dartmouth College and is an incoming HDSI Postdoctoral Fellow. A computational biologist by training, he has broad interests across data science, and he is particularly enthusiastic about research that brings together traditionally quantitative and qualitative disciplines. To that end, most of his research is concentrated in two interdisciplinary areas: the Digital Humanities, including computational text analysis for Latin, ancient Greek, and other premodern traditions and the cultural evolution of literature, and systems biology and mathematical modeling for biomedicine.

Joseph is the co-founder and co-director of the Quantitative Criticism Lab. Prior to coming to Dartmouth, Joseph received a Ph.D. in Systems Biology from Harvard University and an A.B. in Chemistry from Princeton University.
