I received my PhD in Accounting from York University in 2011, my LLM in Tax Law from Queen's University in 2006, and my MAcc in Taxation from Brock University in 2003. Prior to joining Laurier, I was chair of the Accounting department at Ryerson University. I am a Canadian CPA and also have an ARCT in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music.
My research seeks to understand decisions individual taxpayers can make related to tax return compliance, voluntary disclosures, and whistleblowing. Using insights from psychology and/or economics, I am investigating how tax authorities can improve tax return compliance, as well as the incidence of taxpayers making their own voluntary disclosures and reporting others' tax fraud. I am also researching how the introduction of the TFSA affected Canadians' savings in RRSPs.
I am willing to supervise graduate students who wish to do behavioural research related to tax or ethics.
