Research Data Management/Curation Lead and Co-Director of the University Digital Conservancy
As the Research Data Management/Curation Lead and co-director of the University Digital Conservancy I coordinate the library's efforts around research data management, access, and archiving. This includes leading the Data Repository for the U of M. Prior to this I served as library liaison to the Physics, Astronomy, and Geology departments (2007-2011). My research areas of focus are data management services, digital repository infrastructure, scientific data curation, citation analysis, information-seeking behavior and web development of user-centered tools to access information.
