Areas of Research: 

My research in information science is hugely influenced by my prior work as an excavator of ice age fossils at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits. Thus, my interests include biodiversity and natural history museum informatics; long-term data and database curation, particularly in a research or museum setting; and bridging gaps between biology, geology, and informatics.

Courses Taught: 

LIS490MS: Museum Informatics
LIS590DCL: Data Cleaning in Theory and Practice
