I received my MSc in Psychology from Peabody College at Vanderbilt University (U.S.A.) in 2003 and my PhD in Psychology in 2006.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a research associate and the director for research and system development at the Centre for Evaluation and Program Improvement in Nashville, TN (2006-2008).
I am the director of the Centre for Community Research Learning and Action, and I am a founding partner of the social enterprise Sustainable Societies Consulting Group.
The main focus of my research is the psychology of sustainability. I apply community and other psychology principles, theories and tools to address issues related to sustainability, including global climate change mitigation and resiliency, with a special focus on environmental justice and youth engagement in environmental action.
I am interested in supervising students at different levels who are interested in community psychology and social justice and who want to use their studies to make this world a better place for all. Students with an interest in sustainability, environmental justice and/or youth engagement are especially encouraged to contact me.
