I met Prof. Sinclair in a DH graduate seminar at McGill, during which I developed a great passion for DH. Prof. Sinclair encouraged me to learn how to code and introduced me to many tools and topics that helped me define my academic path. He later became a member of my supervisory committee and my conversations with him were key in the development of my doctoral research project. I also had the fortune of being Prof. Sinclair’s teaching assistant during two semesters, in a course called Understanding Digital and Social Media. I now have the opportunity to teach this same course myself. I do not see how I could fill his shoes, but everything I learned from him will always guide me. I will give my all to make him proud. He was an outstanding professor, a supportive mentor, a brilliant researcher, and a kind human being. I will miss him.
