Areas of responsibility:

Reference and Library Instruction

As the Science and Accessibility Librarian, I support members of the Reed community in Science, Technology, and Mathematics, while also collaborating to make the Library spaces, resources, and services inclusive. I also help manage the content and resources related to teaching and research that supports the curriculum. 

As library liaison to the Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Math, Physics, and German departments, I am happy to help with research needs in the classroom, lab, at the reference desk, or by appointment.

Accessibility and inclusion in Libraries is very important to me. Your comments, suggestions, and questions concerning these issues are welcome. 


My office hours are Tuesdays from 9 am to 10 am and Wednesdays 3 pm to 4 pm.
