Here is what I’m currently doing with my life.
I’m the Director of Research & Education at Altmetric, a data science company that uncovers the attention that research receives online. My research interests include incentives systems and values in academia, and I have written and presented widely about altmetrics, Open Science, and library services.
- HuMetricsHSS: I’m working with a motley crew of amazing humanists and librarians to define and drive adoption for more “humane” metrics in the humanities and social sciences.
- Metrics Toolkit: I’m building this “no bullshit” guide to the proper use of research metrics along with Heather Coates (IUPUI) and Robin Champieux (OHSU), thanks to the support of the Force11 Innovation Challenge grant.
- Library Pipeline: I chair Library Pipeline’s board, as well as the Innovation and Startups committee. I also volunteer for the Green Open Access Working Group.
- The Idealis: I co-founded and launched this open access, overlay journal for scholarly communication research in March 2017.
- Exploring the Twin Cities: I moved to Minneapolis in late 2017 and am in love with it (and also Saint Paul)!
- Python: I’m in the midst of learning Python for data science.
- Martial arts: In April 2017, I earned my yellow belt in krav maga (studying at the excellent G3 Combatives in Rio Rancho, NM). Since moving to Minneapolis, I’ve opened up my martial arts study to include muay thai and other disciplines.
- Homebrewing: I’ve been homebrewing beer and wine since 2012. I use BrewersFriend to manage and share my beer recipes.
