I completed my PhD at the University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Education in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy. My focus is in media and technology studies. Recently, I was a sessional instructor for graduate and undergraduate courses in Media & Technology Studies and Digital Learning and Curriculum. Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow with the University of Victoria (UVIC) department of Computer Science focusing on the role of Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality in an informal learning environment. I am also a postdoctoral fellow with UBC working in Agency for Learning in Immersive and Virtual Environments (ALIVE) lab.
I am also a full time faculty member at the Centre for Digital Media.
My research focuses on digital media and technology (please see my Research page for more details).
I am very passionate about the role of women in tech and how I can explore my own role through research and teaching. In particular, I want to focus on the idea of immersive experiences in entertainment and education and the role of thoughtful design. I am excited to continue my career in media studies.
