What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

I am a Research & Instruction and Data Librarian at Tufts University’s Hirsh Health Sciences Library. I help researchers write Data Management Plans for their grants and share their work and data at the end of a project. Before I was a librarian, I was a biomedical researcher studying plant and human pathogens.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

I have been interested in strategies for getting scientific research into the hands of the public since I was a researcher. I want to do more outreach about the value of preprints for the researchers I am supporting now, and I am curious to see the perspective of current researchers in the fellows program!

What are you excited about in science communication?

I am excited about the recent push for more open data! I am optimistic about the future of open science in general, and I hope that more openness in publishing, software, data, peer review, etc. will lead to increased transparency, reproducibility, and trust in science over time.

Ask me about….

AI ethics, the transition from academic research to academic librarianship, or the best way to cook an egg.
