At Vanderbilt University I help graduate and undergraduate students learn how to do research and succeed academically by introducing them to a range of tools, developing new tools, creating educational programs, and advocating for the use of library services. My goal is to help connect researchers to the tools and insights that can help them to integrate good data management practices and data sharing tools to improve scientific collaboration. I became interested in Library and Information science after my PhD in chemistry and decided to pursue a Master's Degree at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. This degree connected me with many opportunities to act as an advocate for integrating library services into modern scientific research.

I was a computational chemist at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities whose research has focused on performing quantum mechanical calculations on the utility of metal-organic frameworks for applications involving magnetism, carbon dioxide capture, and catalysis. My interest in fundamental research stemmed from my desire to gain a deeper understanding of processes used in industrial and energy generating applications. The computational nature of my research provides me a strong understanding of the theory behind these processes and has allowed me provide insight to and learn from experimental chemists and chemical engineers.
