to my home page. I'm Professor and Chair of the Library
& Information Science (LIS) Program, Associate Chair
of the Information &
Computer Sciences (ICS) Department, and a graduate faculty
member of the Interdisciplinary
PhD Program in Communication & Information Sciences
(CIS), which encompasses four units and three colleges across
the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
I'm interested in how people integrate diverse types of knowledge, from document collections to the work of people with different kinds of expertise. I study interdisciplinary scientific collaborations, social Q&A communities and informal educational resources (for details, see my Research page). If you're interested in any of these projects or programs, feel free to contact me.
