I am a Learning Librarian with a background in English as a Second Language instruction. My work involves mainly information literacy instruction, in-person and virtual reference services, teaching students how to use library resources and organizing events for undergraduates. I manage the U-M Library's Michigan Library Scholars internship for undergraduate students. I also collaborate frequently with campus units that provide services to international students and study abroad opportunities such as the International Center, the English Language Institute and the International Education Network.
My research interests include previous library experience of international students and information literacy in languages other than English.
