Drawing from a background in music history and information science, my research interest is in systems that facilitate music knowledge sharing and learning. My master's thesis will explore the online communities of practice surrounding music knowledge, specifically the teacher/student dynamic. My long-term interest is in building online communities around different kinds of music knowledge. As a student in the Knowledge Media Design collaborative program, I am also developing a system design proposal for my final portfolio piece. Most recent idea is a continuation of my work on the system design team of the On-Deman Book System ( to serve the First Nations community in Northern Ontario, Canada.
