Areas of Research: 

My research interests are in human information behavior, specifically the seeking, acquisition, and sharing of knowledge. My focus will be to understand the information behaviors of herbalists within Uganda’s context and thereafter develop a knowledge fusion framework for lifelong learning and knowledge preservation. The research will be designed to focus on: how traditional herbalists seek, acquire, and share existing and new traditional medicine knowledge; understanding challenges and how choices are negotiated; and identifying strategies for documenting herbalists’ existing knowledge.
