Hello. I'm a doctoral student in the School of Information Studies at Charles Sturt University in Australia. My supervisors are Professor Lisa Given, Research Fellow at RIPPLE (Research Institute for Professional Practice, Learning and Education), and Dr. Kim Thompson. My research investigates the relationship between universal human needs and information needs. In that vein, I'm studying how people feed themselves and their families, and the role of information within this everyday activity.
I also work as a librarian at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, where I focus on public service activities such as information-related teaching and in-depth consultations for students and instructors in three departments: Art & Design, Drama, and Psychology.
