Hello! I'm a first-year PhD Student in information studies at McGill University in Canada, working on the transition of library systems to linked data.

I'm also an associate librarian at Laurentian University (currently on leave). In that role I'm responsible for (amongst other things) systems, scholarly communications, and digital preservation.

My other interests include ( is my go-to language), web dev, privacy, OERs, and procrastination via social media.
