Katerina Stanton

Ph.D. Student

Katerina Stanton is a Ph.D. student at Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies. She holds a B.A. in Classics in Latin and Ancient Greek from Cornell University, and received her M.S. in Library and Information Science from Syracuse University while working in Access Services at Mann Library at Cornell University. Katerina is also a proud graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy focused on Latin, and spent a year in Viterbo, Italy, through School Year Abroad.


Her research focuses on design in librarianship, knowledge organization, ontologies, and the philosophy of information. Current projects include domain analysis of design in library classification systems, a diversity audit of the syllabi in library educational programs, and methodological decolonization.


Katerina is a word junkie with a passion for communication, efficiency, and meta-analysis. She loves reading books and her two cats, Nosey and Noodle, like any stereotypical librarian, but was inspired to pursue academic dreams after completing her Masters at Syracuse. Nowadays, Katerina carries a red pen on her at all times and harbors an unabated obsession for finding typos in the New York Times.
