Ed Triplett is an Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies. His research has focused on the historical visualization of medieval and early modern borders, the architecture of Iberia's military-religious orders, and the how GIS, CAD, and game engine systems can be used to answer landscape-scale questions about the past. He teaches courses on the design and construction of castles, monasteries and cathedrals during the Middle Ages, and on the use of GIS for mapping historical subjects. Ed has been a core member of the the Digital Art History and Visual Culture Research Lab (DAHVC) since 2016, and he is currently developing a 3D mapping project that reconstructs an early 16th century codex of Portuguese castle plans and perspective drawings known as "Book of Fortresses."
