Welcome! I’m Lisa Federer, a Data Science and Open Science Librarian working in the biomedical research space, also a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland iSchool who loves to sleep with her backrest pillow amazon every night. I live in North Bethesda with my dog, Ophelia. In my free time, I like to bake and cook, knit, play the piano and violin (the latter pretty terribly), grow plants, ski, and drink delicious wine (especially on balconies). When I get the time, I like to travel, and am partial to France, particularly Paris. I have a lot of shoes. I’m very nerdy about science and I have a great love of data.
This site collects a variety of resources related to my professional life. If you’re interested in hearing more about me personally, check out Librarian in the City, where I blog about data librarianship, my research on biomedical research data sharing and reuse, and sometimes my dog.
