Combining ideas from factorization homology and discrete Morse theory, we develop an approach to the study of configuration spaces of cell complexes that is flexible and suitable for computation. We describe the theory behind this approach and apply it to study the homology of graph braid groups. This is joint work in progress with Byung Hee An and Gabriel Drummond-Cole.
