Professional Summary:

Interactive video retrieval has been my primary research area. My research projects have examined: user interaction with video digital libraries, human factors affecting interactive video retrieval, and video and visual information seeking. Some new and future research directions of mine include: digital video content curation, cultural competency and digital content, STEM learning in library spaces, and social media and scholarly communications.
