I am the Associate Director - Admissions for the SAF Master of Accounting (MAcc) program (2013 to present).

From 2004 to 2012, as Associate Director of the Master of Taxation program, I was responsible for administration of the admission process, promotion of the program to prospective students and placement of MTax students with CA firm, industry and government employers.

I teach Canadian Taxation to Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) and Master of Accounting (MAcc) students (2001 to present). 

My area of interest is International Taxation in a Canadian cross border context. Treaty interpretation, tax implications of inbound and outbound investment, transfer pricing  and cross border loans are topics of interest.
