I joined Elsevier in 2017 as a Research Intelligence Customer Consultant covering the Eastern United States to advise in research management and analysis tools. I regularly consult research directors and managers on what they can do to improve their institutional research strategy utilizing Elsevier tools.  Before coming to Elsevier, I was a chemist with Sigma-Aldrich and then became the lead in business development for their Stable Isotope division.  I am a firm advocate of researchers helping researchers.

Like many of my colleagues, I started off as a chemist and then became an academic librarian. I am a Senior Research Intelligence consultant covering the Western US. In this role I help research leaders and professionals turn information into actionable knowledge. I am a strong advocate for the responsible use of research metrics throughout the analytics landscape. What brings me joy are family, animals and Scopus.
