BSc, MSc, PhD (Calgary)
My research currently focuses on curiosity and inquiry. I am particularly interested in understanding how curiosity and inquiry can help promote investment and ownership of learning and more meaningful engagement in both the classroom and in our day to day interactions with others. In addition, I am exploring the possibility that curiosity and may be important pieces of the resilience puzzle both in the face of both minor set-backs in everyday life and major tragedies. In these instances where risk and trust are involved, an individual, a relationship and society more generally may benefit from forgiveness, and I believe curiosity and inquiry may help achieve that often difficult goal. In order to enhance our understanding of these important social phenomena, I bring the best of both quantitative and qualitative inquiry to my research by using mixed methodology approaches wherever possible.
