About Me

I am a 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. Gary Marchionini, and I am affiliated with the UNC SILS Interactive Information Systems Lab.

My research interests include:

  • the impact of time constraints and time pressure on the process and outcomes of information-seeking,
  • metacognition in 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 Researcher and Designer at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. I also taught middle school social studies and pre-algebra at Countryside School and conducted technical training after getting my BS in Secondary Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
