I am an Associate Professor of Inclusive Education in the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa. I conduct collaborative research in areas including mental health literacy, social emotional learning, and teachers' inclusive education beliefs and practices. I teach courses related to these topics at the B.Ed. and graduate level and supervise graduate students studying a range of related areas.

 

All of these efforts have the goal of improving social, emotional and academic outcomes for children and youth.
