I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Ryerson University. My research interest is in graph theory, with applications to real-world complex networks and graph searching games such as Cops and Robbers. I am an adjunct professor at Dalhousie University, and I am the founding member of the research group Graphs at Ryerson (G@R). My research is supported by grants from NSERC and Ryerson, with past grants from Mprime and MITACS. I've won several awards for my research and graduate supervision, as outlined in my CV. I am co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal Internet Mathematics, and I am on the Editorial Board of Contributions to Discrete Mathematics. I serve as Chair of the Pure Mathematics section on the NSERC Evaluation Group for Mathematics and Statistics, and have served on the Board of Directors of Mprime and MITACS NCE. I was the inaugural Associate Dean, Students and Programs in the Yeates School of Graduate Studies.
