I am an Associate Professor in School and Applied Child Psychology (SACP) and the Graduate Program Director for Educational Psychology. I have experience coordinating blended (online and on-campus) programs in school and counselling psychology and currently teach in online and face-to-face formats. In my clinical work, I am interested in the assessment of adults and ADHD. My research interests fall within two areas. First, preparing students for the transition to postsecondary learning. This includes the fostering of self-regulated learning (e.g., coping, motivation, self-efficacy, metacognition) and identifying the needs of students with disabilities (e.g., learning disabilities, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder). Second, issues with formal cognitive and academic assessment such as effective teaching practices for graduate students and assessment with diverse populations (i.e., Indigenous students).
