Research Interests

I hold a PhD in Social/Personality Psychology with expertise in the fields of measurement, attitudes, and attitude change. 

Recently, my work has shifted from consumer psychology to a focus on systems within higher education. Applying psychological science, I work to develop systems that facilitate learning in post-secondary spaces, with a keen focus on innovating systems to meet community needs. 

I am passionate about Open Access, and am pleased to share a number of Open Access resources that represent some of my pillars of interest. Please feel free to use, share, reuse, and adapt!

Leading the Way: Envisioning the future of higher education: This edited book reviews issues facing the post-secondary sector with an aim of envisioning a strong and robust future.

The Canadian Handbook for Careers in Psychological Science: Despite psychology being one of the most popular undergraduate programs, students often report not knowing how training in psychology relates to careers. With chapters written by experts across Canada, this book explores just some of the many ways that students can apply their training in psychological science across a variety of careers and sectors.
