My research focuses on information practices, including information organization and searching practices, which are unexamined, tacit, or assumed to be mundane. My research illuminates how people's everyday information practices are not mundane at all; they are complex, meaningful, and co-constitutive with identity.
I also have an abiding interest in how language choices, such as those of information professionals, reflect power relations, norms, and ways of thinking. I'm moved to explore and document information experiences that are often taken for granted, and to question how such practices are predominantly or habitually discussed.
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. I also have a track record as a researcher in library studies, particularly in the area of information literacy.
