Director of Research Data Services & Social, Natural, and Engineering Sciences at UVA Library. I am an astronomer by background, with a passion for the history of astronomy at UVA in particular.
In the Library, my team and I work with researchers to help them locate resources for their work, including support for all phase of their research lifecycle. We help them access data, work with them to develop techniques for data wrangling, as well as advising them on statistical techniques for their work. We also help them create data management plans, and good data management practices over the course of their project. Finally, we help them prepare their data for sharing and preservation.
