Personal statement

I am a lecturer in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences.

My research interests include information behaviour, information literacy, and evidence-based librarianship. I am a qualitative researcher particularly interested in the information behaviour of individuals who are in transition and information behaviour in the workplace.

I bring an international perspective to my research and teaching, doing my MLIS in Canada and my PhD in Australia.
