Subject Specialization:

Communication; Education & Counseling; Sociology & Criminology: Russian Studies


I am the subject librarian for Communication, Education & Counseling, Sociology & Criminology, and Russian Studies.

Before joining the library staff at Falvey, I was the Teaching & Research Technologies Librarian at the Penn Libraries, where, among other responsibilities, I worked with social science data and mapping, and served as the subject librarian for Urban Studies.
