I have taught at UTM since the Fall of 2000, first as a sessional instructor and, since 2014, as Assistant Professor in the Teaching Stream. I was one of the two inaugural winners of the University of Toronto Teaching Fellowship in 2015-2016 for my work on and in Active Learning Classrooms, and am most recently a co-founder of a multi-year, cross-disciplinary project to explore the connections between academic integrity and the student experience. I continue to teach and publish in my initial field of medieval drama, as well as on graphic novels.
