Bio/Research

I received my PhD from the interdisciplinary Centre for the Study of Religion, at the University of Toronto, in 2001. My MA is from the University of Winnipeg (1992). I joined the Department of Sociology as a full-time faculty member in 2001.

I currently have three active research projects. One is a reader-centred exploration of magazine reading and library usage among older adults (with Dr. Nicole Dalmer, McMaster, and Mina Ly, University of Waterloo). The second involves research on older adults who lost their jobs in the U.S. Great Recession (with Dr. Annette Nierobisz, Carleton College). The third involves an analysis of advocacy and mobilization efforts by and on behalf of unpaid/family caregivers of older adults (with a research team led by Dr. Laura Funk, University of Manitoba).

Alongside these research pursuits, I am very interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning, and in experimenting with innovative ways to engage students in the undergraduate classroom.
