Operating primarily within the field of Sociology of Religion but with occasional forays into Communication Studies, Dr. Haskell’s teaching and research focuses on religion in Canada, media in Canada, and religion and media in Canada.

Before academia, Dr. Haskell was a journalist. He started as a print features writer and later moved to TV working as a reporter in London, Windsor, and Waterloo Region. He has received awards from TV Ontario and the Radio Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) for his news reporting. Just prior to joining the faculty at Laurier's Brantford campus in 2005, he spent four years as a professor of Journalism at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario. He has also enjoyed careers as a high school teacher, professional musician and motivational speaker.

Dr. Haskell’s current research interest is growth and decline in Canada's churches and religious engagement of youth. He has also published on the news media’s portrayal and perceptions of Evangelicals, sermon content and analysis, religious marketing via internet, religious youth rallies.
