Hello! I'm a doctoral candidate in the Faculty of Health, Arts, and Design at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia. My supervisors are Professor Lisa Given and Dr. Kim Thompson. I also work as a librarian at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.
My research interests focus on articulating information practices, including information organization and searching practices, which are often unexamined, tacit, or assumed to be mundane. In my thesis research, I work with people to create video and other forms of data capturing everyday food activities and the information practices within them.
For more information, see my CV.
I'd be happy to hear from you! firstname.lastname@example.org
The core of my work as a librarian is managing several aspects of monograph collections at the University of Alberta, including ebooks, approval plans, demand-driven acquisition, and assessment.
Before becoming a collections librarian, I worked as a public services librarian for more than a decade. I helped people find and use information, manage research data, and work through processes such as making their publications openly available.
