I am a PhD student at the Simmons College, Graduate School of Library and

areas of research and a dissertation thesis.

I work full-time as a tenure track, faculty-status librarian at Worcester
State University, as a Cataloging Librarian.

particular on phenomenology as a research methodology. But I am aiming as a
higher level approach where I hope to outline what a phenomenological
research program for LIS would be, given the lack of understanding most
studnets or researchers have of what phenomenology is all about, and what a
rigorous application of it would intend in a qualitative methodological
