I manage FAUW's communications, events, membership records, and IT. I also provide support to the Lecturers Committee and am on FAUW's Indigenization Working Group.
I have experience in magazine editing, website and social media management, and musical theatre production. I am an outdoor adventurer, hammock-dweller, and reader, often at the same time. You can follow me on Twitter @inhabitings.
I'm from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and enjoy research in algorithms for signal processing. My favourite undergraduate teaching is first-year computer programming for biomedical engineering. I’m also preparing a new graduate course in statistics for biomedical engineering to launch in May 2017.
I've been around Waterloo (undergraduate student 1974-79, graduate student 1979-84, faculty member 1985-present) for some 42 years! From 2009-12, I was FAUW president and I now serve on the FAUW board as acting past president. I am passionate about academic freedom, collegial governance, and university quality. I'm currently part of a vibrant University committee working to redraft Policy 76 (Faculty Hiring).
In February, I like to be found with friends and family on the streets or beach of Bucerías, Nayarit, México — not too far from a bottle of Corona. I want to speak more Spanish but it's proving an uphill struggle!
I have been an Assistant Professor in the Department of French Studies since 2011. I research and teach Québec and Canadian French minorities’ literatures and cultures, with a particular interest in post-industrial landscapes in visual arts and poetry.
I served on the FAUW Board 2015–2017 and now help FAUW coordinate nominations of faculty members for CAUT, OCUFA, and other awards.
When not on campus, my outdoorsy personality comes back full swing and I am off on trails biking or running – sometimes trailing or following my three children!
