I received my BA from the University of Leicester (1966), my MA from Simon Fraser (1969) and PhD from the University of Western Ontario (1977). I taught Geography at Memorial University from 1971 to 2009. I now hold positions at Memorial University as an Honorary Research Professor in Geography and as an Associate of the Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development.

My research interests are in the impacts of digitalization and fly-in/fly-out work arrangements in the mining sector, growth and closure in resource-dependent communities, and the process and practice of social and economic impact assessment and management of large-scale resource projects. Much of my work has been in the mining, oil and gas, hydro and construction sectors in Newfoundland and Labrador, northern and western Canada, Western Australia and the Gulf of Mexico.
