I am a doctoral candidate in Library and Information Science at the University of Western Ontario. My interests relate to information policy and law, particularly intellectual property, health law, and information privacy law. I am currently researching copyright compliance management in libraries, archives, and educational institutions.

I work with Prof. Sam Trosow, analyzing copyright policies of Canadian universities and colleges, as well as the use and regulation of user-generated content.

I have worked with Prof. Jacquie Burkell, investigating data privacy regulations, and the use of technology in the courtroom in association with the Cyberjustice Project. I am an HQP with GRAND-NCE in the research areas of Usable Privacy and Security for New Media Environments, and Access to News Media: Production, Search, Retrieval and Distribution.

I was founding Editor-in-Chief of The Western Journal of Legal Studies, a student-run, open access law review.

I also maintain a blog, Fair Dealing in Education, in which I discuss copyright issues in the post-secondary community.
