I study people's information experiences in everyday life. I'm especially intrigued by the role of the body and the senses in our information experiences. With my thesis research I'm investigating how people feed themselves and their families, focusing on the role of often-tacit embodied information and knowledge within these activities.
I also work as the librarian for Art & Design, Drama, and Psychology at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.
