Jeffrey is an academic librarian with diverse experience in supporting universities, research metrics, and research infrastructure technologies. Jeffrey worked at the U15 to coordinate data-sharing activities and most recently worked at the University of Waterloo to help faculty and management analyze the impact of their research. With a background in information science research, Jeffrey has published a number of articles on bibliometric techniques, including an algorithm for author-name disambiguation. Furthermore, as a co-organizer of the Bibliometrics and Research Impact Community (BRIC) conference, Jeffrey has worked for several years to bring together librarians from across Canada to share their knowledge of research metrics. Jeffrey earned an MLIS from Western University and a Bachelor’s in the History of Science from Concordia University. 

As the ORCID-CA Community Manager Jeffrey will be developing resources and materials for use by members as well as leading training sessions and providing technical support in both official languages. Jeffrey will also coordinate and support communication within the ORCID-CA community. Jeffrey is looking forward to working alongside colleagues at institutions from coast to coast to encourage the adoption of ORCID IDs, as well as ORCID integrations, with the goal of making it easier for all institutions to interface with the services and systems that support scholarly communication.
