I am the Director of the Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center
in the NC State University Libraries, an instructor in the UNC SILS, and an OER Research Fellow. Trained as a lawyer and librarian, I guide policy, speak, and write on open culture and navigating legal uncertainty.
As a course designer and presenter for ACRL
, and the Open Textbook Network
, I have developed training materials and workshops across the US and for international audiences from Ontario to Abu Dhabi. My current research focuses on the relationship between copyright and open education. I serve as PI on two IMLS-funded projects: the Scholarly Communication Notebook
(LG-36-19-0021-19) and the Library Copyright Institute
