About Me

I am an Associate Professor at the School of Information and Library Science and the director of the Community Equity, Data and Information Lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

I study information marginalization, trust, and safety in health and learning institutions (libraries and education) and online, with a special focus on maternal health equity and disability justice. My current work focuses on connections between personal assessments of danger or risk and marginalized people's use of defensive information behaviors to protect self, family, and community from institutional harm. 

I am a faculty affiliate with the Center for Information Technology and Public Life and Center for Critical Race and Digital Studies. I am also a researcher with the Postnatal Patient Safety Learning Lab
