In the Flow of Consciousness Lab (FoCL), my students and I are endeavouring to measure aspects of everyday thought, including the nature and frequency of off-task thought. Our lab follows open science practices (https://osf.io/) and I am a signatory of the Openness Initiative (https://opennessinitiative.org/). I am President-Elect of the Society for Descriptive Psychology (http://www.sdp.org/).
I am privileged to serve as Chair of the Department of Psychology.
For many years, I have been involved in governance, primarily through Senate. Currently, I serve as Chair of the Board of Undergraduate Studies, and as Chair of Senate Governance Review. Previously, I served as Chair of Bylaws and Membership (twice), Chair of Senate Priorities and Planning, Chair of Quality Assurance, and as a member of the Board of Graduate Studies, and Indigenous Initiatives (Governance). I was also Chair of the Research Ethics Board, and I served two years as Director of the First Year Seminars Program.
