About me

I am the Assistant Director, STEM, as well as librarian liaison to the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences.

In my AD role, I work to advance the services, initiatives, partnerships, and strategic agenda designed to propel the library's support of the campus's research enterprise. I manage a dynamic team of STEM librarians committed to diversity, outreach, and service in their respective areas of expertise. As subject specialist for Earth & Environmental Sciences, I build collections in support of interdisciplinary scholarship, develop and deliver customized instruction for audiences at various points in their scholarly careers, and collaborate with members of the U-M research community and members of the community at large to facilitate and share information, learn, educate, and otherwise serve.

My professional interests include recruitment, retention, success, and satisfaction of underrepresented groups in STEM as well as science communication. Please contact me if you would like to have a discussion about ways the library can support the campus community in increased science communication, civic engagement, or activities that strengthen our scholarly output through diverse representation of thought and experience.
