Currently I am a professor in the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation at Memorial University and I also hold a cross appointment with the School of Maritime Studies at the Marine Institute. I was formerly the dean of Human Kinetics and Recreation at MUN. Prior to joining Memorial I was the interim vice president of Education at Women’s College Hospital where I was also the director of the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education which is a joint centre shared between Women’s College Hospital and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. I also held the BMO chair in Health Professions Education Research at the Wilson Centre, University of Toronto and Toronto General Hospital. I received my undergraduate degree in physical education from McMaster University (1985) and my PhD in kinesiology from the University of Waterloo (1989). My research has been funded by NSERC since 1991 and involves studying human motor control and learning in extreme environments.
