Dr. Ascher was easily approachable in the IS Lab and made time to discuss data-informed decision making with me. We discussed her work creating a "Data Lake" using Confluence templates. I found her to be warm and knowledgeable as she both gave instruction, but also made the encounter a two way conversation. I walked away from encounters with Dr. Ascher with exciting and creative ideas about how to best put a Data Lake together for UCLA Library staff to use. I always get a sense of collaboration when working with Dr. Ascher.
