Professional Biography

As the Assessment Librarian, I collaborate with my colleagues in User Experience and across Libraries functions to collect data that helps us improve our services and articulate our impact. I am particularly interested in critical approaches to assessment that prioritize equity and inclusion, and I tend to use mixed-methods approaches with multiple data sources to better understand our services and our users.

Education

Research Interests

My research to date has focused on two distinct areas: library assessment practice and the graduate student experience. My library assessment work has focused on values-based assessment design, particularly in instructional assessment, and will soon be expanding to take a more holistic look at library impact. My work in graduate student experience has focused on creating effective training and mentorship structures in student employment programs.
