About me

I am going to be an assistant professor at the School of Library and Information Science at Indiana University. I have been a doctoral student studying information science at the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My main area of interest is information seeking behavior and human computer interaction. My dissertation work examines how people use facets in combination with text search in faceted library catalogs. I am also a research assistant for Dr. Hemminger and the instructor of INLS 461.

My time as a doctoral student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) has been a time of great intellectual, emotional, and personal growth. Since starting my PhD degree, I have learned what it takes to succeed as a PhD student, especially at a prestigious school.
