Jeri Wieringa, PhD (@jerielizabeth) is an Affiliate Faculty member with the Department of History and Art History at George Mason University. A digital historian, her work is situated at the intersection of history and data science.

Her dissertation, A Gospel of Health and Salvation: Modeling the Religious Culture of Seventh-day Adventism, 1843-1920 <>, uses topic modeling to explore the role of beliefs about the end of time in the development of the religious culture of Seventh-day Adventism. She earned her MAR in the History of Christianity from Yale Divinity School, and her BA in English and Philosophy from Calvin College.
