Michael McCormick

Francis Goelet Professor of Medieval History, Department of History, FAS

Professor McCormick leads the international effort to create a Digital Atlas of Medieval and Roman Civilization (DARMC), that builds on his extensive interdisciplinary approach to historical studies. McCormick's investigations include such wide ranging methods as molecular archaeology, historical epidemiology, and artificial intelligence for textual analysis. In addition Professor McCormick engages in more down to earth endeavors such as drilling ice cores in the Swiss Alps to reconstruct ancient climate scenarios, and digging up the capital city of the Visigoths in Spain.
