I am an Associate Professor at the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS), Faculty of Education, at the University of Alberta.

My research interests include the following:
  • human information interaction, particularly in consumer health contexts
  • public libraries, qualitative research, and critical approaches to the library and information professions
  • publishing and media industries as they relate to the information professions
  • knowledge production, dissemination, and reception

Her research program entails exploring the interactions among people and data, information, and knowledge, the broader social forces that shape these interactions, and the variety of contexts and the mediating systems and platforms in which these interactions take place.
