Education:

BA (Honours), University of Western Ontario;
MA, University of Western Ontario;
PhD, University of Western Ontario

Areas of Specialization:

Water governance; First Nations drinking water and wastewater risk; harmful algae blooms; agricultural decision support

Research Interests:

My current programs of research include: 1) examining the underlying spatial and socioeconomic determinants of First Nations drinking water and wastewater risk; 2) exploring the use of Unmanned Airborne Vehicle (UAV) for applications in precision farming; 3) assessing policy responses to harmful algae blooms; and 4) coordinating a state of the basin report for Lake Nipissing.
