About

I am a Visiting Researcher in Political Science at Campus Saint-Jean and simultaneously serve as Graduate Ombudsman at the University of Alberta.

Research

My research interests include health care policy, media representation and issue framing, post-secondary education policy, governance (administrative fairness and equity), and conflict resolution in the higher education and health care sectors.
