Research description

My research work includes Indigenous initiatives, methodologies, and pedagogies in engineering education; engineering student perspectives, identity, and learning; epistemological tensions in engineering education; and engineering competencies required for engineering practice.


I am a white settler woman who grew up as a visitor on Treaty One Territory and in the Homeland of the Métis Nation, in the place now known as Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am a mom, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, and mentor. I am a visual artist, writer, educator, and researcher, and I teach communication, engineering education research, career design, and decolonizing engineering courses. I am grateful for my husband and our three kids, our families and friends, our pets, and the opportunity to work in this field. I love nature, and play ringette with a group of neighborhood mothers on a team called, The Awesomes!
