I am a second year PhD student in the LIS Program. My research interests focus mainly around classification theory and academic libraries, particularly the harm that has been caused by library classification.

My educational background is in Ancient History and my outside interests include cactus cultivation and cat spoiling.

Originally from England, I have been living in Canada for a decade.
