I completed my PhD at the University of Victoria in 2005 and became a faculty member immediately after. As a graduate student, my area of research was in Graph Theory, but as a teaching professor my focus has been dedicated to teaching and teaching-related research.

As a coordinator for first and second year courses, I teach mainly entry-level high-enrollment courses. With approximately 500 students each term it can be a real challenge to get to know very many of my students, but I greatly enjoy the opportunity to meet such diverse groups of students from every field of study across campus.
