Nicole is Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Sociology at Trent University. Her doctoral work in Library and Information Science at The University of Western Ontario examined the often-invisible information work done by family caregivers of older adults. She is particularly interested in examining the intersection of information work and caring work; exploring the information related work needed to care for an aging family member. Wearing her other research hat, Nicole also studies and advocates for the development of more responsive public library services for aging populations.
