Fred Gibbs is an assistant professor of history at the University of New Mexico, with a research focus on the intersection of natural philosophy and medicine in the late medieval and early modern periods. His manuscript-in-progress explores medical literature on poison c.1200-1600, especially how physicians debated its definition, properties, ontological existence, and its role in disease and contagion. He also experiments with digital methodologies that employ various mapping, text mining, and visualization techniques in the service of historical research. He teaches classes on the history of science and medicine, as well as digital humanities. More information at http://fredgibbs.net.
