Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor at the Information School, University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am also an affiliated faculty member of the Holtz Center for Science & Technology Studies, and Center for Demography of Health and Aging (CDHA). Prior to this, I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa and Simmons University. I study science, scholarship, and the scientific workforce using massive data to inform decision-making in science policy and to better understand the doing of science. I teach in the areas of information technology, database management, statistical data analysis, data interoperability, information visualization, and research methods. I got my Ph.D. in Information Science (minor in Statistics) from the School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University Bloomington.
I am looking for highly-motivated Ph.D. students to work on cutting-edge problems in the science of science, scientific workforce diversity, scholarly data mining & analytics, and science policy. Students with interests and background in NLP, statististics, sociology, and information science are welcome to apply. Please contact me by email if you are interested.
