How does your research translate into your teaching, both through courses and supervision?
Sociology and Criminology both involve the study of humans, societies, structures, and interactions. To effectively teach in these fields, the instructor needs to make connections between the course materials and what is happening in the world beyond the classroom. I bring examples and key learnings from my research into every class I teach. Some of the courses are directly related, such as “Sociological Perspectives on Homelessness” and some are more broadly applied, such as “Introduction to Sociology II.” The key to translating research into teaching is being able to tell a story about your findings in a way that students can related to and remember after the class is complete.
My current or recent projects include:
Currently I am working with a team of researchers across Canada to study the impact of COVID- 19 on homelessness sector agencies in rural and remote communities. This follows from a previous study of how H1N1 impacted homelessness sectors in 2009-2010.
Five publications that exemplify my work:

What achievements and/or contributions in research are you most proud of?
I am a community-based researcher who works closely with local communities to help find solutions to homelessness. I am proud of the tangible impact this research has had and of the opportunities to engage students in this research in a meaningful way.
