A great way to find out what I'm up to and thinking about is to follow me on Twitter.  I tweet about my research and teaching, climate change, community energy planning, innovation in energy services and systems,  and about women in energy and STEM. On twitter, I have curated six lists that you can subscribe to in order to learn more about climate change and energy policy in Canada.

You can also find me on linkedin and

Current Students:

My office is located in 728 Kaneff Tower in Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies. If you are a current student and you have read through this website and you still have questions about my research and teaching, then you should contact me so we can meet in person! I normally hold drop-in office hours in the Fall on Tuesdays just after ENVS 5100.

If you are a current MES I student and you are interested in energy research, please contact me before the end of the Winter 2018 semester. I encourage you to take my course ENVS 6121 Community, energy and planning to learn more about my approach to investigating community energy topics.

Students who work under my supervision will normally take ENVS 6121 Community, energy and planning in Winter 2018, followed by a 6 credit summer independent reaching course to prepare you for theory, concept, methods and to explore your dataset, and then the transitions course in Fall 2018, when we will prepare your research proposal. Currently I have three datasets you can contribute to and work with for your research.

Advising Sessions:

Advising/supervising sessions are now posted on Moodle (scroll to "Other" and find "ENVS_Grad_Advising").

Open Office Hours

Please note I will not be able to meet any students on October 24th, 2017. MES students in particular can feel free to drop in to meet me on October 31 between 1 and 2 PM in 728 Kaneff Tower.
