I received my doctorate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – School of Information and Library Science.  My dissertation is titled: ““Data Sharing And Data Reuse: An Investigation Of Descriptive Information Facilitators And Inhibitors.”  During my doctoral program I was a DigCCurr II Fellow and Project Manager and a Research Associate for the Metadata Research Center.

My MLIS is from the University of Iowa – School of Library and Information Science.  During my master’s program I was a Digital Libraries Research Fellow.  I also worked for Digital Library Services, WiderNet, and Special Collections.  My bachelor’s degrees are in Geosciences, English, and Spanish.  During my English and Spanish degree I focused mainly on urban studies and transnational literatures.  During my Geoscience degree my research was focused in geochemistry and paleoclimatology.
