I am thrilled to take up my post as Assistant Professor and Reference/Instruction Librarian in the Hostos Community College Library, having previously served as Librarian for Public Services and User Experience at Yeshiva University since 2012. My research interests include students’ experiences of the library, both face-to-face and virtual, based on the belief that the multiple dimensions of that experience can have a strong impact on student learning and success. I received a Master of Library Science degree from St. Johns University, and an MA and PhD in Theatre History/Criticism from the University of Texas at Austin.
