Administration: From January 2016 until December 2018 I am serving as FIMS' Associate Dean Graduate and Postdoctoral.

Teaching: In the MLIS program I have mainly taught required courses: most recently
9004 Research methods and statistics, and
9005 Managing and Working in Information Organizations.

I have also taught
9001 Foundations of library and information science,
9003 Information Sources and Services.

In the LIS doctoral program I have taught Advanced Research Methods and Knowledge Practices in Scholarly and Professional Communities.

I have also supervised a number of guided research and individual study projects at the master's and PhD levels. I have advised thesis students in Library and Information Science, Media Studies, Health Information Science, Women's Studies & Feminist Research, and Education.

Research: I have two active research projects at the moment. The first is a study of everyday recordkeeping: how people "keep track" of things in their lives. This study is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and data collection is complete. The second is a study of doctoral supervision in interdisciplinary environments. My research team has undertaken a pilot study for this project and we have published initial findings.
