I am an assistant professor in the School of Information and Library Science at Pratt Institute where I developed and coordinate the User Experience (UX) program and advise the Pratt UX/IA student group. My research and teaching focus on the converging disciplines of information studies, human-computer interaction (HCI), and UX design. My current focus is understanding and strengthening the practices of information architecture, usability, and user-centered design in libraries, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions. I earned my Ph.D. in Information Studies and HCI from Drexel University and hold an M.S. in Applied and Mathematical Statistics from Rutgers University.
