EDUCATION 

As Research and Instructional Services Librarian, I support Stevens students, staff and faculty during all phases of their research and discovery process, using a wide variety of print and electronic resources. I develop online research guides for a wide variety of subjects, courses and topics taught at Stevens. I also participate in the instruction program, working with librarians and faculty to develop and teach a robust variety of classes and workshops that foster information literacy and support the mission of the Samuel C. Williams Library.
