    I use my expertise as a biomedical research librarian to advise UCSF students, faculty and staff on their literature search strategies and information management work flows. By educating researchers on literature search engines, databases, public data sets and other resources, I enable them to overcome bottle necks in their research. As the in-house expert on US copyright law, I help ensure that UCSF researchers resolve copyright questions that arise in the course of their academic and professional activities.

    You can benefit from my skill set through one-on-one consultations, classes, group presentations to your department, or through online guides I have authored.
