Like many people in the information field, it is to a great extent serendipity that brought me into the information field. I came with a plan to become an academic librarian, but then I stumbled into a research path and the rest is history that is still in the making. I am passionate about research both as an activity and as an object of study (most of my research relates in one way or another to the internal and external dynamics of research communities, with a focus on how knowledge is produced, disseminated and used). Both in my personal and professional lives, I am a collective goal-oriented person who likes to bring people and ideas together, foster productive interactions, learn, and have fun.
