Since 2013, I serve as Data Librarian for the Rutgers University Libraries. Prior to this, I was Data and Economics Librarian, and prior to that, Business and Economics Librarian. Since 1999, I have been a member of the library faculty of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. I was granted tenure and promoted to the rank of Librarian II in 2005. I hold an M.A. in Economics, an M.S. in Library Science, and am currently pursuing an M.S. in Statistics part-time.
I lead the RUresearch Data Team. The RUresearch data portal provides access to research data produced by the Rutgers community. I work with researchers to archive data and advise on data management plans, and provide numeric and statistical data expertise to projects of RUcore.
On the New Brunswick/Piscataway campus, I am responsible for social sciences data collections and Data Services. I am the subject specialist for and liaison to the Department of Economics, and the Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics. I manage the Libraries' collections, give instructional sessions, and help researchers and students locate information in these disciplines, and provide support for quantitative research across a range of disciplines.
