Hello! I build these guides to get you started in your information searches. Learning a few key things about information systems, and the interests behind their creation, helps us use them more effectively and transparently. I am available for information research consultations, and can work with you to develop learning experiences that address the information needs of your course or lab group. My work is informed by masters degrees in botany and library science, diverse professional experience in food systems, and ongoing training in evidence synthesis.
