Research interests and academics

I am also a doctoral candidate in Library and Information Sciences with Wikipedia use as my area of research. I am (slowly) working towards becoming a more active editor on Wikipedia and Wikidata making any contributions of value that fall within my skill set or expertise.

Feel free to ask me about my research interests or for comment on qualitiative research methods, systematic reviews, health librarianship and information/digital literacy.
