As a Scholarly Communications librarian, I promote and support open access publishing practices at IUPUI. These include the library's open access publishing fund, open journal system and institutional repository initiatives. In addition to advocating for new forms of scholarly communications, I provide education and consultation services relevant to authorship, metrics for impact, fair use and authors' rights. I also serve as a subject liaison for the IUPUI School of Public and Environmental Affairs.

Prior to joining University Library, I worked as an embedded librarian in the IU Center for Bioethics, where I managed a special collection of bioethics resources while collaborating on information ethics, research ethics, community engagement and health policy projects.

Areas of Expertise: Authorship, Citation Analysis, Copyright, Criminal Justice, Digital Libraries, Ethics, Fair Use, Open Access, Public Policy, Publishing, Scholarly Communications, Sustainability

Research Interests: Developments in and the ethics of scholarly publishing and peer review.
