Head Librarian, Li & Ma Science Library, and Physics Librarian, Science Library
As Head Librarian of the Robin Li and Melissa Ma Science Library, I oversee a talented group of librarians and public service staff, focused on supporting Stanford students and faculty with their information needs. As the Physics Librarian and the Acting Mathematics and Statistics Librarian, I am responsible for keeping Stanford researchers and students well-supported with information resources and research assistance in physics, applied physics, and astronomy and in mathematics and statistics. Through the University Libraries, I also serve as the local Refworks administrator and on the Bibliographic Management support team. Prior to Stanford, I was in the Caltech libraries and even earlier, participated in the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) program.
