About me

The very, very short version: I help scholars present themselves and their work to the world. 

The short version: I empower scholars to create the conditions under which they can establish:

  • a strong public identity,
  • a coherent account of their contributions to the scholarly enterprise,
  • and a persuasive body of evidence for the impact of their work within the academy,
  • ...and for the public.

I can answer questions about and provide training on the following tools and topics: Altmetric/Altmetric Explorer, bibliometrics/citation analysis, Dimensions,, Michigan Research Experts, research impact metrics, and establishing and maintaining a public scholarly profile. I'm also always glad to talk about open access, repositories, copyright and licensing issues, etc., as they pertain to making your work more discoverable, usable, and impactful. 

As I will be working remotely for the foreseeable future, the best way to reach my is by email ( or by requesting an appointment through LibCal.
