Welcome

This is the personal website of Alyson Gamble, an information professional currently based in Boston, Massachusetts.

I am a PhD student at Simmons University’s School of Library and Information Science. In my doctoral studies, I am investigating the information-seeking behaviors of LGBTQIA+ people who have mental health concerns. Currently, I am focused on the use of AI chatbots in mobile applications for mental health.

My professional background includes work as a MLIS-degreed science librarian, where I developed digital repositories for marine science collections, as well as and researched and taught undergraduate courses in digital publishing, information literacy, and scholarly communications. I’ve also conducted research and provided instruction in data science for the humanities and research data management.

When away from screens, I enjoy long-distance running, backpacking, reading, and attending concerts and theatrical productions. You can find some information about these hobbies under the Whimsy tab.
