I serve as the Head of the Research Assessment and Communications Department at Galter Health Sciences Library & Learning Center at Northwestern University where I develop, support, and implement programs that increase awareness about digital scholarship and issues in the digital environment among faculty, researchers, and students at Feinberg School of Medicine. I work with library colleagues on preservation and access to scholarly outputs through a digital repository and other digital means, and I provide expertise for campus-wide digital preservation activities.

I am particularly interested in using information visualization to facilitate stronger comprehension of data in the assessment process. I regularly use tools such as VOSViewer, Science of Science Tool, Gephi, Excel, and Tableau. I keep an updated collection of my works in DigitalHub, the institutional repository for Northwestern Medicine.

Please contact me with your questions related to:

  • working with DigitalHub or other online repository
  • assistance with Northwestern Elements
  • disseminating non-traditional research outputs
  • developing ideas for new digital projects
  • managing or tracking publications
  • maintaining an impactful online identity
