Catherine DeRose


Catherine DeRose, the Engagement and Outreach Manager for the Yale Digital Humanities Lab, welcomes conversations with students about career paths for humanities (especially English) majors, graduate school, and the digital humanities (DH). In the DHLab, she meets with students and faculty for consultations, teaches workshops on data analysis and visualization, and works with DH Fellows who are thinking about how to integrate digital methods into their teaching. Prior to Yale, Catherine was at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she received a PhD in English literature alongside a minor in Humanities Computing and Design, and taught courses on British literature and composition. Her research brings together media studies, information history, and history of the book to think about the Victorian print explosion and the challenges we’re facing with mass digitization today.

Kem Edwards


Kem Edwards JE ’49 is not the oldest Fellow, but usually can claim to be the “oldest Member of the College present.” He can also claim to be the Oldest Living Whiffenpoof, and sings with three other not-so-old Whiffs as the Elm City Four. Over the last two decades he has audited 143 courses – Anthropology to Statistics, Yoruba hasn’t appeared on his radar. He and Phoebe enjoy Fellows dinners, betting on Yale athletics, and supporting the Phillips Fund; and looking forward to Senior/Fellows Croquet and other College events. As a College Advisor, he is pleased to march with Fellows at Commencement and see the graduation of former advisees. Four years is such a short time.

Scott Ellaway


Scott Ellaway, a Welsh conductor and advocate for broadening access to classical music, would be happy to talk with students about their interest in pursuing a career in the world of classical music. In an article published by BBC Music Magazine in 2009, Ellaway became known for his entrepreneurial spirit as the founder and artistic director of Orchestra Europa. Born in Monmouthshire, South Wales, Ellaway was educated locally before gaining an organ scholarship to Keble College, Oxford in 2002 and graduating in 2005. He made his professional conducting debut at age 21 with members of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Welsh National Opera in Abergavenny. He has since worked with several prominent orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, the Berliner Symphoniker, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the London Mozart Players, and performed at the Lincoln Center in New York City for the first time in 2014. He made his debut with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Henry Wood Hall in 2016 and was recently on staff at Chicago’s Lyric Opera. Ellaway lives in New York where he is artistic director of OpusYou.

Jay has done several data analysis projects receiving attention in the media. Most recently, he has exposed a new quirk in the scoring system used in international figure skating competitions. He is currently attempting to master Mutter Paneer (including making the paneer from raw milk). He is looking forward to seeing Der Ring des Nibelungen again. He grew up in Vermont, has seen a good bit of the US, and has traveled to China, Brazil, and parts of Europe. He speaks French poorly.
