Tajanae Harris (pronouns: she / her / hers) is a PhD student in Information Science at CU Boulder. Her research interests continue to evolve but under the supervision of Professor Leysia Palen, she focuses on how Black and Indigenous communities gather, process, and disseminate information in times of natural disaster. To further her understanding of these efforts, she also pursues a certificate in Environmental Justice. Tajanae arrives to Boulder by way of Dallas, TX after a brief four years at Syracuse University (BA in Anthropology, minor in Data Analytics). Outside the classroom, you may find Tajanae at the gym; nose-deep in several books; or scouring all of Boulder in search of eclectic apartment decor.
