I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Alberta School of Library and Information Studies. I earned my PhD from the Florida State University School of Information.
My research takes a social informatics perspective on the relationships and interactions between information-centric communities, information and communication technologies (ICTs), and the information behaviour of their users. I am also interested in digital libraries, scientific collaboration, social media, and social and community theories in library and information science. My particular and emerging focus is on the practice and support of information and knowledge sharing across the boundaries that may exist between communities (especially online), and the roles that boundary-spanning individuals and ICTs play in such sociotechnical practices.
