Research Interests

 “If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”

by Albert Einstein


My research interests are a reflection of contemporary issues in Library and Information Studies (LIS) that I feel strongly about and have experienced firsthand. While there is variance among my three areas of research, they share a common thread. All three of my research interest areas, academic library leadership and management, broadband adoption and deployment in rural communities, and academic library spaces and services to constituents; present opportunities for conducting applied research that can ultimately positively impact peoples’ quality of lives and improve librarians’ abilities to do their jobs better. By employing information science theories to explicate and predict behaviors, practicing sound research methods, and conducting responsible research, I plan to contribute to the body of knowledge in the LIS field in these areas.
