Welcome! I work in the Physical Sciences & Engineering Library (in between Chemistry, Physics and Bainer Hall). My subjects are computer science, electrical engineering, applied science, and physics/astronomy, which means that I buy the books in those areas, work with students and faculty in those areas and related topics, and teach library research classes. I also teach library research sessions for UWP 102E, Writing in Engineering.

I can help you with finding references, starting a research project, help using the databases and tracking down materials, as well as copyright and scholarly communications help. I also take requests for purchase.

Stop by the reference desk in PSE -- we're friendly, and we have legos to play with in the library! Or feel free to email me directly.

My professional research interests include open access and open science issues, as well as collaborative information resources -- specifically Wikipedia. I am the co-author of the book How Wikipedia Works: And How You Can Be Involved in it.
