Short Bio

Last comments


I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) at the University of Michigan. My current research is contributing to the development of metrics to track the impact of curatorial actions on data reuse. I completed my PhD in July 2020 in Geography from UC Santa Barbara where I was advised by Dr. Werner Kuhn. My dissertation, Spatially Supported Thematic Discovery of Research Data, focused on addressing data discovery challenges for research data.
