Role in the Library
Shea's role is to connect people with the resources, spaces, services, and technology that will help them with their research. Within the Researcher Support Services department, this can range from providing GIS and data management consultations, to purchasing books and electronic resources, and helping people find them.
Shea is passionate about the intersection of technology, data, and ethics and their impact how people interact with information and with each other. His research area is in critical data studies and he's currently involved in the Data to Policy Challenge, an interdisciplinary initiative for students to develop evidence-based policy proposals and pitch them to local lawmakers.
