Biography

I am the Director of the Learning Experiences Assessment & Planning (LEAP) division. My portfolio includes the Student Evaluation of Teaching and Courses (SETC) program and Educational Goals. Previously, I worked as an analyst in SFU’s Office of Institutional Research and Planning (IRP).

I hold a Ph.D. (Educational Psychology) and M.A. (Educational Technology & Learning Design) from SFU, and a B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia. My research has focused on various statistical techniques for the analysis of large data sets collected from subject eye movements. My most recent publication is a meta-analysis focused on constructive cognitive activities learners can enact to effectively comprehend new information or problem solve. Also, I have taught several graduate-level education courses focused on quantitative research methods at SFU.

I currently live in Port Moody and enjoy fiction, travelling and new experiences.
