I am a doctoral candidate at the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My advisor is Dr. Rob Capra, and I am affiliated with the UNC SILS Interactive Information Systems Lab.
In June 2019, I successfully defended my dissertation “Adaptation in Information Search and Decision Making under Time Pressure.”
My research interests include:
- the impact of time constraints and time pressure on the process and outcomes of exploratory information-seeking,
- information search in support of decision-making,
- metacognition in information-seeking and search, and
- designing and evaluating search systems provide better support for learning, problem-solving, and decision-making in exploratory or collaborative 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 researcher and user experience designer at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.
