I grew up on the shores of Huntington Beach, CA, and my interest in marine biology goes back as far as I can remember. After spending most of my adult life studying and working in the marine sciences, I jumped ship and became a data specialist with the libraries at Oregon State University in 2012, and have been with Stanford Libraries at Hopkins Marine Station since December 2015. I have a strong interest in exploring how library collections can be leveraged to surface historical environmental and biodiversity data and embrace a "collections as data" approach at Miller Library.
