Howdy, all. I'm a youth advocate and doctoral candidate at Drexel University in the College of Computing and Informatics, where I study information science from a socio-technical perspective, deeply informed by my background as a teen services librarian. My dissertation is focused on teens' everyday life spectrums of technology use, including low, moderate, temporary, high, and non-use. At Drexel, I do work with the Youth Online Research Group. My research is currently supported by the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program*, of which I am honored to be a member, as well as the Young Adult Library Services Association. My co-advisors are Denise E. Agosto and Andrea Forte, and my committee includes Urs Gasser (Harvard University), Sean P. Goggins (University of Missouri), and Kristene Unsworth. In the past, I had the great opportunity to work as an intern at the Youth and Media Lab at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society. Thanks for visiting, and feel free to get in touch!
