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

I am the Scholarly Communications Librarian at Excelsior University, where I encourage faculty to utilize open access publishing and our institutional repository. I have my MA in History from Queen Mary, the University of London, and my MLIS from St. John’s University. My research focuses on Open Educational Resources in both the humanities and science. I’m also a SPARC Fellow and a Society of Scholarly Publishing Fellow.

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

I’m ready to expand my knowledge of scientific publishing and preprints! This program is a great opportunity for me to take a deep dive into an area of publishing that will be very beneficial to my faculty. I’m also looking forward to meeting other researchers and librarians.

What are you excited about in science communication?

One thing I’m excited about in science communication is peer review! With the rise of AI, the purpose of peer review and who performs it is a question many information professionals are debating.

Ask me about….

Tea! I’m an avid tea drinker and I enjoy trying a new flavor of boba tea whenever I can. My husband and I traveled to China a few years ago and one highlight of the trip (of many!) was visiting a tea museum!
