About Me

Hello! This page is mostly a pointer to other places to learn more about the personal and professional aspects of my life, but the short version is that I got my PhD in Biomedical Science, then promptly left academia to explore how to improve how science is done. I helped launch Mendeley, which was acquired by Elsevier in 2013, then worked to advance open access, open data, and research reproducibility at Elsevier. I did a bunch of standards work and also worked with a startup (Science Exchange) and some publishing partners to make a bunch of other publishers and researchers profoundly uncomfortable via the Reproducibility Initiative. During the pandemic, I left research behind entirely to develop and lead the communications program at Quora. I use this site to experiment with web technologies, knowledge management, open science.
