Background and Areas of Expertise

As an undergraduate I majored in the History of Art and also took courses in Chemistry, Fashion and Costume Design. I am also interested in music, languages and literature and enjoy researching topics in a variety of disciplines. I am at Dickinson College to help you with research so you can write papers and prepare presentations.

I can be of particular help with:

  • Developing research strategies
  • Critically evaluating sources
  • Searching for sources
  • Citation and Writing Styles (MLA, APA, Chicago)
  • Research in the Arts and Humanities
  • Finding and developing topics
  • ...and much more!
