As liason librarian for the Mathematics and Statistics departments, I assess and select information resources in support of their scholarship, provide instruction in the use of library resources, support scholarly communication at all steps of the research lifecycle, and provide research consultations to scholars and students at all levels. I am also a member of the Public Health Core Team and work to support the Biostatistics department in the School of Public Health.

My professional interests include bibliometrics, research impact, database design, topic modelling, machine learning, digital archiving, podcasts, network theory, open access, copyleft, science communication, and diversity in STEM.
