Expertise & Interests

My professional expertise is in supporting research in the life and health sciences through education in specialized resources such as those from NCBI, scholarly communications practice, data literacy, research data management, and expert searching. I am also currently working on ways librarians can support health literacy and medical humanities initiatives, particularly through graphic medicine. Outside of work I enjoy hiking and swimming, traveling to experience new cultures, and almost all things geek-related.
