Profile

Welcome.

I am an Associate Professor in School and Applied Child Psychology (SACP).  I am a registered psychologist and the Graduate Program Director for Educational Psychology.  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).

I am currently accepting graduate students for supervision.
