Profiles in Research: SIAS Assistant Professors

By Justin Wadland

Word Cloud of SIAS Research Interests

A word cloud generated from the collective research interests described on faculty profiles of SIAS assistant professors, generated at

This month features the author profiles of all of the assistant professors in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (SIAS), a group whose research interests encompass a wide range of disciplines and topics. In each of the profiles below, you will find a list of all available publications by the respective authors, including links to the full-text versions whenever possible.

To create these full and up-to-date SelectedWorks author profiles, a small team of library staff worked closely with Turan Kayaoglu and the SIAS Assistant Professor peer-mentoring group during Spring Quarter 2016. Each faculty member received a publication report outlining which publications could be made available full-text on his or her SelectedWorks site, along with instructions on how to upload the articles. Then during the May 2016 peer-mentoring meeting, I offered a training in how to log into and edit the profile.

This was the first time that the UW Tacoma Library Digital Commons team completed author profiles for a large group of faculty. We look forward to applying what we learned as we branch out to other departments and units on campus. I would like to thank Dr. Kayaoglu and the SIAS assistant professors peer-mentoring group for being our test group on this project. Also, special thanks to the library staff who put extra effort into making this possible: Katrina Gertz, Megan Saunders, and Angie Wiehagen.
