I am an Associate Librarian in the Library Systems & Information Technology unit at the University Library. I am primarily responsible for the Library's online presence and the technical systems that support it. Contact me with questions or feedback about the Library website, our online search tools, the library PAWS channels, or anything else related to the library and digital technology.
My research focuses on how usable, open source technology can support the information practices of non-expert people and communities, particularly in the preservation and use of cultural heritage collections. With a background in digital humanities, I am passionate about the value of making computational methods and tools accessible to everyone.
I have earned a BA in History from the University of Saskatchewan, BFA in Photography from Concordia University in Montreal, and an MLIS and MA in Humanities Computing from the University of Alberta.
I am currently on sabbatical until September 2021. I can be reached by email but may be slow in responding.
