My areas of research include scientific data stewardship, open access publishing in the sciences, open data, teaching undergraduates how to read and understand scholarly literature in the sciences, and incorporating rare books, book arts, and ephemera in science undergraduate education as well as K-12 for improving STEM education. Specific focus on writing in the sciences and communicating science. I also work toward digitizing science materials in the Archives in order to make them available to researchers across the world and the general public. Develop partnerships with the CU Museum of Natural History to digitize archival papers on fossils to add to their Florissant Fossil Beds database.
