I found my home at Laurier Brantford in 2012 and am very excited to be part of the growth and development of this vibrant, interdisciplinary and collaborative community. I spent most of my childhood and early adulthood in and around Edmonton, Alberta, where I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Alberta. In 2002, I made my way to beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia where I spent 10 years completing my graduate degrees (MA and PhD) and my post-doctoral work.

I take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of children and youth. Broadly, I am interested in studying how children, adolescents, and young adults develop cognitively and socio-emotionally as they interact and socialize using various technologies.

With this in mind, my primary area of research focus has been in the area of online aggression, associated mental health concerns, responsible Internet use, and creating caring communities. Key to my research, teaching and learning philosophies is my desire to connect academia with the community.

In this vein, I strive to ensure my research informs the work I do with the community, while simultaneously allowing my work with the community to inform my research and teaching.
