PH.D. in LIS at the School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.
As a first year PhD student, I am interested in further exploring the areas of interest that prompted me to pursue a doctoral degree: interdisciplinary collaboration, changing practices in scholarly communication, and multimodal representations of research work/new modalities. I look forward to exploring new areas of study and am doing this through coursework in information behaviors and theories of information and knowledge production. I look forward to exposure to new (to me) areas of study and hope to pursue coursework in organizational structures and behaviors, qualitative research methods (interview techniques and ethnographies). Beyond that, I look forward to encountering new ideas and areas of interest through my involvement in the HASTAC scholars program.
