Bio/Research

I have always had an intense enthusiasm for all Sciences and a corresponding desire to share my interests with others in creative ways. My genuine love for Science has compelled me to encourage others, particularly younger members of society, to explore the wonders of science that have enriched my own life. I have been active in outreach activities throughout my academic career, and I am certain that, regardless of my specific career path, I would be very active in Science outreach.

As a faculty member, I am also well aware of the importance of outreach to the future success of the Faculty of Science, and believe that outreach is beneficial to the Faculty of Science in three major ways:

Our enthusiasm in showcasing the virtues of our university provides justification for prospective students to explore academic opportunities at Western.

It encourages the public to interact with us, reducing their feeling of alienation which would otherwise reduce their willingness to support our teaching and research activities.

Science outreach exposes prospective students to potential opportunities in science which they might not otherwise be aware of. This is particularly relevant to disciplines such as the Earth Sciences which do not enjoy the "familiarity factor" as the "pure sciences" do.
