Head Librarian, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Wolbach Library

I oversee the management of the Wolbach Library at the Center for Astrophysics. At Wolbach I direct all of the library's finances, services, resources, and subscription agreements. I also define library policies and set the division's long and short term priorities. My goal at Wolbach is to build a library in collaboration with the Astronomy community that meets astronomers' changing needs and ensures long-term access to their scientific legacy.

As Head Librarian I hold appointments with both the Harvard College Observatory and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. I have MS degrees both in Data Science and Library and Information Science.
