About

I am an Associate Professor of Teaching at the School of Information at UBC. I teach courses on 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 focuses on curriculum design for archival studies programs to leverage and incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning into archival and records management practices. My previous research has focused on design and evaluation of community-engaged learning for information studies graduate programs, and design and evaluation of interdisciplinary (media and informatics) undergraduate programs.
