I am an assistant professor at Pratt Institute’s School of Information. My teaching and research is focused on emerging technologies in the information and library science domain. I typically teach several sections of the core LIS 654 Information Technologies, as well as a course in Web Development. In Fall 2016, I will be offering a new special topics course in Database Design and Development. In the past, I have taught and developed courses on topics such as: human-computer interaction, informatics, programming, and social aspects of computing.
My research areas of interest include end-user development, human-computer interaction, socio-technical systems, and information technology education. I earned my Ph.D. and my MSIS from the College of Information Science and Technology (iSchool) at Drexel University. Prior to pursuing my Ph.D., I have an industry background in web development and usability, and am well-versed in a variety of user-centered design methodologies. I have held positions in web development in e-commerce, e-learning and academic libraries.
