Texts & Technology Ph.D. Alumni Speaker Series

Former FBI agent Mark Pollitt first visited UCF while working with the National Center for Forensic Science to develop standards for digital forensics. Leveraging his extensive experience in digital forensics and the rich tradition of digital humanities provided in the Texts and Technology program, Mark crafted his dissertation: The Hermeneutics of the Hard Drive: Using Narratology, Natural Language Processing, and Knowledge Management to Improve the Effectiveness of the Digital Forensic Process.

With his colleague Dr. Philip Craiger, Dr. Pollitt was recently awarded a $1.8 million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation to train college faculty to teach digital forensics, establish new programs for cyber-security, and create programs to interest students in grades K–12 in pursuing careers in digital forensics. Dr. Pollitt has recently been appointed a member of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Organization for Scientific Area Committees (OSAC) that will coordinate development of standards and guidelines to improve the quality and consistency of work in the forensic science community.
