About Me

I'm smiling

My name is Daina. I’m the Head Librarian at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. At the CfA, I primarily focus on lowering social and technical barriers that impact the astronomy community’s ability to create and share their work. Some of my specific topics of interest include open science, research software preservation, machine learning, and the history of science (see Project PHaEDRA).

I don’t update my blog much, so you can find more of my recent writing and work on Github and The Galactic Gazette. Additional details about my professional history can be found on my LinkedIn profile and you can follow me on Twitter @DainaBouquin. Copies of my resume and CV are available upon request through the “contact me” tab.

Originally from Buffalo, NY, I currently live in Melrose, MA with my husband, three blind cats, and many house plants. I am a member of the Henry David Thoreau Zen Sangha of Boundless Way Zen. I enjoy year-round ocean swimming and being outside.
