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.

Side projects


  • Generally, I spend a lot of time walking around the mesas of New Mexico, feeding bananas to my pet chihuahuas, and thinking about and doing the stuff I’ve listed on this /now page.
  • Python and front-end development: I’ve mostly given up on R for the time being and am teaching myself Python and making my way through the FreeCodeCamp curriculum instead. You can follow my progress on my #100DaysofCode journal.
  • Krav maga: I’ve been studying this Israeli self-defense skill for over a year.
  • Homebrewing: I’ve been homebrewing beer and wine since 2012. I use BrewersFriend to manage and share my beer recipes.
