I have 15 years of progressively responsible management and leadership experience in academic libraries, research centers, and library associations driving programs and R&D projects focused on the technologies, policies, and best practices that support the long–term stewardship, access, and impact of digital research outputs and digital cultural heritages. I also conduct research in the areas of scholarly communication, digital scholarship, digital stewardship, data curation, metadata, information modeling, and conceptual foundations of LIS. I am currently the Interim EU Projects Manager and Open Science Officer at LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries. I was formerly Head of Scholarly Communication Services at Columbia University Libraries
