My students and I are endeavouring to measure aspects of everyday thought, including the nature and frequency of off-task thought. Our lab follows open science practices (https://osf.io/), I am a signatory of the Openness Initiative (https://opennessinitiative.org/), and I am a member of the Society for Descriptive Psychology (http://www.sdp.org/).
I am privleged to serve as the Chair of the Department of Psychology.
Prior to becoming Chair, I was the Director of the First Year Seminars Program.
For many years, I have been involved in governance through Senate. I have served as Chair of Senate Governance Review, Chair of Bylaws and Membership (twice), Chair of Senate Priorities and Planning, Chair of Quality Assurance, and as a member of the Board of Graduate Studies, Senate Priorities and Planning, and Aboriginal Initiatives (Governance). I also served as a Chair of the Research Ethics Board.
