My principal role as a Digital User Experience librarian at the IUPUI University Library is to improve user experience on its website. I conduct usability studies, apply user-centered design methods, analyze data, and design websites based on data gathered from usability studies. In addition, I serve as a liaison librarian for the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, particularly the program of Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences.

My interests include user-centered design trends, emerging technologies that lead to new ways of information seeking, graph database as a way to represent and store data, analytical tools to better understand users, and design to deliver information in a better way.

I have my Bachelor’s degree in Information Management Systems from Concordia University and Master’s degree in Library and Information Studies from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
