Veronica Armour is an educator and learning experience designer interested in the interplay between people, information, and innovation. She is the Associate Director for the Innovation, Design, & Entrepreneurship Academy at Rutgers University-New Brunswick where she also teaches part-time for the Information Technology and Informatics program at the School of Communication and Information. Her research focuses on knowledge brokering, university innovation spaces and the intersection of the information and knowledge practices of key stakeholders. It is centered on the common spaces provided by libraries, specifically incubator spaces, given how they offer a point where key stakeholders - students, faculty, librarians, administrators, university policymakers, and industry - converge. This interest is situated within the context of the push-pull force that universities are experiencing to not only be spaces of knowledge creation (traditional space, via research) but to also be incubators of innovation that can address wicked problems facing society.
