Current Position:Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, Mount Saint Vincent University
At UBC, the focus of my research was to understand the relationship among meditative inquiry, human consciousness, and education. In my dissertation, I theorized the concept of curriculum as meditative inquiry, which urges educators to re-imagine the whole phenomena of education in a new light wherein the understanding of consciousness and its transformation forms the core of the educational experience. My doctoral research was later published as a book, Curriculum As Meditative Inquiry (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013). My funding as a doctoral student was made possible through the SSHRC grants of my principal supervisor, Professor William Pinar. This opportunity enabled me to work closely with him as a research assistant and gave me exposure to work on multiple major research projects, and publish papers. These experiences led to my current position as an Associate Professor at Mount Saint Vincent University, where I continue to research and teach in the fields of curriculum theory, social studies, and holistic education.
