Here is what I’m currently doing with my life.

Career

I’m the Director of Research Relations at Digital Science, working to bring Altmetric and Dimensions data to the larger scientometrics community. 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

  • HuMetricsHSS: I’m wrapping up the first phase of a Mellon-funded initiative to define and drive adoption for more “humane” metrics in the humanities and social sciences.
  • Metrics Toolkit: I’m working alongside Heather Coates (IUPUI), Robin Champieux (OHSU), and an amazing editorial board to run this “no bullshit” guide to the proper use of research metrics.
  • Library Pipeline: I serve on Library Pipeline’s board, as well as the Innovation and Startups committee.

Interests

  • Exploring the Twin Cities: I moved to Minneapolis in late 2017 and am in love with it (and also Saint Paul)!
  • Brazilian jiu jitsu and other martial arts: In April 2017, I earned my yellow belt in krav maga from the excellent G3 Combatives in Rio Rancho, NM. Since moving to Minneapolis, I’ve fallen in love with Brazilian jiu jitsu.
