My research focuses on embodiment in everyday-life information practices. In that vein, I'm studying how people feed themselves and their families, and the nature of information within these activities.
I also work as a librarian at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, where I support members of the departments of Art & Design, Drama, and Psychology, focusing on services such as teaching and consultations.

In addition to my doctoral work, I have also investigated librarians' experiences of the teaching role and with new technology.
