Alumni and Faculty

Professor in Library

I teach undergraduate students how to do research well. I also build connections between the Library and the campus community and promote library programming and services. Follow the Library's social media accounts for more information about the library and happenings in the worlds of information and publishing. 

In 2012 I won the Minnesota Academic Innovators Award, presented by the Minnesota Library Association's Academic & Research Libraries Division, for my work developing a semester-long library lab component for a political science research methods course.  

I write novels, short stories, and flash fiction. My creative work considers themes of identity and belonging, along with a healthy dose of fantasy and magic. I'm especially committed to diversity in my writing. My research interests include recreational reading on college campuses and diversity initiatives in academic libraries.
