My dissertation explores the creation of a standard periodic table of the elements. I'm broadly interested in classification, organization, and nomenclature, as well as visual representation and scientific organizations. I was an academic reference librarian for 14 years; I'm a life-long Baltimore Orioles fan and I like rugby (watching, not playing!).
