I received my PhD in Visual and Cultural Studies from the University of Rochester in 2003. I completed an MA in Art History at York University in 1997 and a BA (summa cum laude) in Art History at McMaster University in 1995.
I am also an avid runner, spouse and dad and can sometimes be naively optimistic.
My research and teaching are based in the areas of visual culture studies and visual communication. I am primarily interested in critical analyses of photography, specifically how the image is used as evidence across a wide range of social and institutional practices. My current work examines the use of the image as evidence in sport with particular emphasis on the photo finish.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of visual culture, visual communication, sport studies and surveillance studies.
