Biography

I am a University Lecturer in the School of Criminology. I am actively involved in ongoing discussions with my FASS colleagues regarding the scholarship of teaching and learning and am particularly interested in the pedagogy surrounding experiential learning in the classroom, and the creation of safe and inclusive classroom spaces. I was awarded the SFU Excellence in Teaching Award (2016) and the SFU Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Cormack Excellence in Teaching Award (2014). I am also a faculty mentor for the graduate student Certificate Program for University Teaching and Learning as well as for new faculty in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. I have served as an Academic Integrity Advisor since 2008. I have received five Teaching and Learning Development grants including my current grant that focuses on pedagogical to decolonizing and Indigenizing our classes.
