Research activities

Current projects

My research interests are inclusive journalism and Indigenous education.  I am currently working on a study looking at the experiences of Indigenous students in Canadian journalism programs and ways they might be better served within those programs.

I am also leading a collaborative journalism project between Concordia University and Kahnawake Survival School, which sees Concordia students mentoring Kanien'kehá:ka secondary students as they produce original pieces of journalism.
