Expertise Profile
Dr. CindyAnn Rose-Redwood was born in Trinidad and Tobago but grew up in New York City.

This diverse background shaped her interest in immigrant and international issues early on and drew her to study how people of diverse backgrounds socialize.

Dr. Rose-Redwood is a senior instructor in the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria. Her research focuses on social geography, in particular the geography of divisions in society, such as race and ethnicity.

She is interested in studying the complexities associated with ethnic segregation among immigrant communities in large cities, where these neighbourhoods are dominated by one race/ethnicity or another.

Dr. Rose-Redwood is particularly proud of a research project that studied the social experiences of international students at North American universities. The resulting article was recently published in the Journal of College Student Development.

In both her research and her teaching, Dr. Rose-Redwood emphasizes the importance of multiculturalism and international perspectives. She believes emphasizing these ideas in a classroom setting is important to bringing about social change in the larger society.

The aim of both Dr. Rose-Redwood's research and teaching is to bring together theory and practical solutions to real world social problems. She encourages her students to think beyond the classroom setting and write policy recommendations to change the world for the better.
