About Me

I am a second year doctoral student at the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

My advisors are Dr. Rob Capra and Dr. Barbara Wildemuth, and I am affiliated with the new Interactive Information Systems Lab.

My research interests include:

  • the impact of time constraints and time pressure on the process and outcomes of information-seeking,
  • time as an measure of information-seeking and search, and
  • collaborative and exploratory information-seeking.

Before I began the doctoral program, I worked as a User Experience Librarian and Head of the Application Development Group at the UNC Health Sciences Library and as a User Experience Designer at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. I also taught social studies and pre-algebra to middle school students at Countryside School after getting my BS in Secondary Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
