I am Assistant Professor of Library and Information Science

My interdisciplinary research at the intersection of ancient philosophy and the digital humanities spans communication and information media and technologies; history and philosophy of culture and technology in relation to the academy, libraries, archives, and museums; the organization and classification of information through history and across various media; information and ethics; media education; and cultural studies research.

I have a Ph.D. in History and Philosophy of Education and a joint-specialist B.A. in Philosophy and Religious Studies from the University of Toronto. I pursued postdoctoral research in the History and Classics Departments at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and as a Visiting Fellow at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
