About me

I lead the International Studies Team and act as liaison to the departments of Romance Languages and Literatures, and Comparative Literature. I support the research, teaching and learning in the area of Romance Languages and Literatures, Latin American, Caribbean, French, Italian and Iberian Studies as well as General and Comparative Literature. I manage collections in these subject areas, teach research methods, and provide research consultations.

I have an M.A. in Hispanic Literatures and an M.L.I.S., both from the University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada). I also completed coursework in Iberian Studies at the University of Warsaw (Poland). Before joining the University of Michigan Library, I worked as a reference librarian at the University of Alberta, and later on at the University of Rochester, NY, where I was the subject specialist for Modern Languages and Cultures, and Translation Studies.

My office phone number is temporarily disconnected while I work remotely due to COVID-19. Please contact me via email.
