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.

In the fall of 2017, Paulette Rothbauer and I worked with a small group of students to develop a pilot for a potential MLIS capstone. I also regularly supervise MLIS guided research and individual study projects, and I'm happy to meet with students to talk about those options.

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

I have supervised a number of PhD directed studies. 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.
