Biography

Research: The focus of my research is classification theory. This subfield of Information Science is concerned with the evaluation of classification practices and structures. Classification theory critiques these processes and structures in order to improve existing systems and future system design. Theorists can critique these systems from a number of viewpoints. I look at how systems change over time, compare with one another when diverse design requirements are invoked by different communities, and how systems can interoperate in the web environment. I am increasingly interested in ethics of information organization, and novel ways to evaluate structures in diverse and varied work practice contexts and discourses.
