I recently graduated with my Ph.D. in Research Methods and Statistics from the University of Denver. I received my M.S. in Library Information Science in 2010 from the University of North Texas. Helping and educating others allows me to believe that my existence is worthwhile. I bring passion and enthusiasm to everything I do and have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. I am a researcher whose expertise in social media methods and analysis draws from a variety of fields including statistics, higher education, information science, media studies, communication studies, and literary criticism. Since I have been trained in a variety of areas related to technology, society, and culture, I currently consider myself an internet studies scholar grounded within the humanities and social sciences.
