My passion and expertise is connecting people with the information and experts they need. As a Senior Product Manager for Elsevier‘s Scopus, I build software to optimize researchers’ scholarly communication workflows.
Currently I lead our altmetrics, author profiling, and Mendeley integration initiatives. I am also an ORCID Ambassador and serve on the NISO Alternative Metrics Initiative Steering Committee. Descriptions of some of my Scopus projects are here.
I am a librarian with experience in both public and academic libraries. I hold an MS in Library Science from the School of Information and Library Science at UNC-Chapel Hill and an AB in Philosophy from Boston College, My resume offers further details about my experience.
Some general topics explored on this site are scholarly communication, online identity and research assessment. Information on recent presentations I have given is located here and a list of my publications is here. Please feel free to contact me about speaking engagements.
Thanks for visiting.
(ORCID, Open Researcher and Contributor ID, seeks to remedy the systemic name ambiguity problems seen in scholarly research by assigning unique identifiers linkable to an individual’s research output. The free Scopus2ORCID wizard guides researchers through the process of creating an ORCID and importing their publication lists from Scopus.)
