Current Role at Stanford


I am a science librarian for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. I work closely with these departments to provide services and resources for students, researchers, postdocs, staff, and faculty. I manage our chemistry and chemical engineering collections, as well as the science software privileges for Stanford affiliates.

Projects


  • Hands-on Laboratory Kits for Remote Learning, Stanford University (6/2020 - 6/2021)

    Developed and shipped Chemistry Laboratory Kits for remote learners, which featured 20 experiments uniquely tailored to the general chemistry (Chem 31A, 31B, and 31M) and the analytical chemistry (Chem 131) coursework. Collaborated with the instructors to redesign the experiments to be safe for home environments and liaised with EH&S to review and approve the content and protocols. Garnered departmental support and approval from Stanford’s Risk Management Team. OSHA Certified packaging and shipment of the chemicals. Ordered reagents and materials; packaged over 20,000 vials of chemical reagents; assembled and shipped 600 laboratory kits to students around the world. This pioneer project inspired other departments and Stanford University to prepare kits for hands-on learning in the remote world.
