About Ally

About Me

I’m the subject librarian for the College of Engineering and many of the science departments at Bucknell. I’m excited to meet with you to learn about your science and engineering interests and to talk about research! Ally holding a sea turtle


I am originally from Buffalo, New York, but spent time in northwestern Pennsylvania while I earned my BS in Environmental Science at Allegheny College. After college, I returned to New York to earn my MS in Information Science from the University at Albany. 


I love reading science fiction books, trying out new vegetarian recipes, and playing video games on easy mode. I also enjoy visiting aquariums and learning about freshwater and marine ecology.

Regardless of where you are in the research process, I am excited to meet with you! Don't hesitate to stop by or send me a note if you have any questions.
