My Research and Writing

I completed a PhD in English from Western University in 2014, where I specialized in contemporary Canadian literature and culture. Since 2015 I have taught at the Writing and Communication Centre at the University of Waterloo, where my research interests have broadened to include writing and communication pedagogy and instructional design.

Here’s a selection of the kinds of writing and research I like to do.
