I teach courses in Canadian politics, gender and politics, race and politics, and the politics of immigration and multiculturalism.

I see effective teaching as an integral component of my research: not only does it provide a venue for exploring new ideas and scholarly innovations, but it is a chance to discuss central concepts in the discipline. For me, these include a commitment to advancing equity and diversity, strengthening democratic citizenship, and contributing to a more just and equal society.

In 2023-2024, I am teaching:

  • PSCI 2003: Canadian Political Institutions
  • PSCI 4506: Women and Politics in North America

At Carleton, I have previously taught:

  • FYSM 1611: Gender, Race, and the Politics of Exclusion
  • PSCI 4809/5915: The Politics of Race

At the University of Toronto, I taught

  • POL 214: Canadian Government and Politics
  • POL 368: Women, Gender and Politics
  • POL 467/2167: The Politics of Immigration and Multiculturalism in Canada

Letters of Recommendation

Would you like to request a letter of recommendation? I generally only agree to write letters when I have sufficient evidence to make the strongest possible case on your behalf. This usually means I have taught you in one or more classes and you achieved a very high standard, I have directly supervised your research, or we have worked together in a one-on-one capacity for at least one semester. If this is you, see the attached file for additional information on requesting letters.

This blog post contains some additional advice on asking for letters of recommendation, which you might find useful.

Graduate Supervision

I work with students at the undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral levels. I am available to supervise students studying issues related to diversity, including gender, sexuality, race, and Indigeneity. I particularly welcome students studying Canadian political institutions and electoral politics. I am open to a broad range of empirical approaches and methods.

Carleton University has a well-regarded Department of Political Science and is ideally situated in the national capital region. It offers specializations in Canadian Politics and Gender & Diversity with strength in the study of migration.
