He/him/his

I joined the University Libraries in July 2005 as the Evening Circulation Supervisor for the Bio-Medical Library. In April 2007 I joined the staff of the Map Library as a Library Assistant, supervising student workers processing a large collection backlog and assisting patrons with reference questions. In June 2010, I became the Head of the Map Library, adding responsibilities including collection development and management and liaison work relating to Geography, Cartography and GIS.

I am also the Project Lead for the Big Ten Academic Alliance Geospatial Data Project, a co-founder and Project Co-Director for the Mapping Prejudice Project, and Adjunct Faculty in the MGIS Program.
