I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Alberta School of Library and Information Studies.

In my research, I adopt social informatics, information behaviour, and information practice perspectives to study information-centric communities that are wholly or partially online. I am particularly interested in the roles played by information and communication technologies (ICTs) in online information-centric communities and the relationships and interactions they have with users—with an emerging focus on immigrants and expatriates—and their information sharing behaviours and practices within these contexts.
