I am a Juniorprofessor (Assistant Professor) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin Institut für Bibliotheks- und Informationswissenschaft (IBI) and the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF). My research examines the social construction of risk in trustworthy digital repository audit and certification. I also conduct research in the areas of digital preservation, digital curation, and data reuse, focusing on social and ethical barriers that limit or prevent the preservation, sharing, and reuse of digital information. I have a PhD from the University of Michigan School of Information, an MSI from the University of Michigan School of Information with a specialization in Preservation of Information, and a BA in Organizational Studies from the University of Michigan. My work has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Australian Academy of Science.
