Micah works at the intersection of technology, community, and policy, looking for creative ways to move academic knowledge into the public sphere. His efforts are invested in collaborative projects with researchers and students, and mentoring early career colleagues in emerging modes of scholarship. As an interdisciplinary researcher, he studies in the evolving field of metascience from an information sciences background. He also serves as the Visiting Program Officer for the Association of Research Libraries, coordinating a pilot program exploring libraries’ role in accelerating the societal impact of research through open sharing of information and data.
As a Fulbright-Schuman Research Fellow, Micah researched open science policy and technical infrastructure in the European Union, nationally in The Netherlands and Denmark, and in the daily work of librarians in those countries. His project, titled “Open Scholarship Policies and Technologies: The European Research Library as a Model for Advancing Global Scholarly Communication,” was carried out at Maastricht University in The Netherlands and at the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen. The Fulbright fellowship allowed him to align his research interests in open infrastructure, transforming scholarly publishing, and the academic library as a hub for future-oriented research activity.
