I'm the Mathematics and Life Sciences Librarian, Hesburgh Libraries of Notre Dame. I graduated from UT-Austin in 1995 and worked for 5 years at McKinsey & Co.'s petroleum practice as an information specialist, then research analyst. I've published in the areas of strategic planning, journal citation half-lives, censorship, syllabi studies, and communities of practice. I'm particularly interested in quantitative analysis and data visualization, including helping colleagues appreciate the power of statistics. I've been involved with the Special Libraries Association's Physics-Astronomy-Mathematics Division and served a 3-year term as division chair-elect / chair / past-chair. I've also been involved with SLA's Biomedical and Life Sciences Division. I have 5 children, ranging in age from 15 to 23.
The best way to get in touch with me is via e-mail.
