What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your work
I am currently a Research and Instruction Librarian at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
What are you excited about in science communication?
Science communication is expanding exponentially. There are so many ways to find new data and research. It is important to help researchers figure out how to best share their new research and results so new solutions and innovations can grow. I am excited to be a part of it since it allows me to use my various skills to help others.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellow program?
There is a push at the university and at the library to increase awareness of WPI research and the preprint process. I volunteered to become the point person for preprint questions and education. I created a guide and am in the process of creating a workshop. I have been researching to increase my knowledge about the preprint field and came across the ASAPbio Fellow Program. I am so excited to participate in the program since there is so much to learn about the preprint community. Becoming part of the fellow program would help me gain the knowledge and make the connections needed to make the preprint education and outreach possible.

When not on campus you will find me out on the water, boating on Nantucket sound or in Boston Harbor.
