My name is Nicholas Cifuentes-Goodbody, and I’m the Associate Director for Articulation and Assessment at the University of Southern California. Before coming to USC, I worked as a Program Coordinator and Assistant Professor of Translation Studies at Hamad bin Khalifa University in Qatar and an Assistant Professor of Spanish at Williams College in Massachusetts.
I’m a Carpentry instructor and love leading software workshops with my AuthorCarpentry friends at the CalTech library. I also have a YouTube channel where I teach courses on Zotero, Markdown, and other tools for academic writing.
This blog is a record of my efforts to be a life-long learner, especially in the area of data science.
If you’d like to get in touch with me, see the social media buttons below. Twitter and LinkedIn are best.
Also, I run a Slack group for folks interested in using technology to make academic writing easier. If you like Markdown,
.bib files, LaTeX, Zettelkasten, Zotero and other such nerdery, you should join!
