Welcoming Shana Kimball

We could not be more chuffed that Shana Kimball will be joining Data & Society this month as our first research manager!

Shana brings ten years of experience working in higher ed / research settings as an academic publisher, project and people manager, strategist, communicator, and public speaker on open access, alternative academic careers, and more. Most recently, at NYPL Labs, she led the development of a new initiative to engage technologists, scholars, and other digital practitioners in new uses of the Library’s digital collections and data sources, and to host conversations and incubate experimental projects that explore the future of public knowledge.

We’re excited – so is Shana! – to have her bringing this experience to bear on Data & Society’s research strategy and growing flock of researchers and projects – to support our team and help our work have an impact.

We are literally, as they say, counting down the days to Shana’s start. Please join us in welcoming her to Data & Society.
