Bio/Research

I did my graduate work in social psychology at York University, receiving my MA in 2000 and my PhD in 2005. Prior to that, I earned BAs in English and Psychology at McMaster University.

I joined Laurier in 2005 at the Brantford campus. Having grown up in Brantford, I am excited to be back in my hometown, and I especially enjoy being a part of the growing, interdisciplinary community at Laurier Brantford.

The main focus of my research is the causes, consequences and resolution of interpersonal conflict. Using a social cognitive framework, my research has examined the role of apology and other gestures of remorse in facilitating forgiveness. Recently, I have begun to study conflict in the context of the criminal justice system, looking at factors such as remorse in offenders on death row, the concept of closure as it relates to victims of crime and how victims of crime are viewed (and influenced) by third parties (i.e., people not involved in the crime).
