About

I am an Associate Professor of Teaching at the School of Information at UBC. I teach courses in digital libraries, digital collections, information systems, information visualization, data management, analytics, and visualization at the iSchool graduate programs and in the Bachelor of Media Studies (BMS).

I was a postdoctoral fellow in visual analytics and interactive science at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University. I have a Ph.D. in Science and Technology Studies (STS) from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (USA), a M.Sc. in Information Management Systems and a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Universidad de Los Andes (Colombia).

My current research is centered in design and evaluation of community-based experiential learning in media and information studies, and design and evaluation of undergraduate media studies programs.
