As an academic, I am committed to making study and research accessible and available and to sharing my training and expertise.

I am Adjunct Graduate Faculty in Cultural Studies at Trent University, which means I am prepared to serve on PhD committees as a reader or co-supervise MA projects and theses.

As a graduate mentor, I like to be involved in recommending work and commenting on ongoing writing. I’m happy to adjust my style and approach after initial conversations about the style of mentor that graduate students seek. I aim to present opportunities for publication and the chance to make connections within my academic networks. If you’re interested in working together, please reach out for an email conversation or a meeting (in-person or virtual).
