I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management. My research focuses on understanding how governments, citizens, and private companies share information through geospatial technology, including open data, social media, mobile devices, and the process of crowdsourcing.
I believe that a strong Faculty Association is a necessary component to the collegial governance model used at the University of Waterloo. FAUW's work is critical to supporting not only the daily functioning of campus, but also strategically shaping how different working groups interact to solve longstanding challenges and improve the working conditions for all.
In my leisure time, I enjoy mountain biking, drinking craft beer, and running around after my kids.
