Associate Professor, Department of Educational Studies, University of British Columbia

Former senior policy advisor and public commentator on education. My research interests include university rankings (I published a book on the topic), the role of media in the policymaking process, educational policy and politics, community and youth engagement, social justice and equity in education.

I have just completed a research project on the role of the Nobel Prize in university rankings and the impact on equity.
