I got my BSc in physics at McMaster University in Hamilton and my MSc and PhD in astronomy at the University of Toronto. I then held an NSERC Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Caltech, was a Plaskett Fellow at NRC's Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics in Victoria and then a Research Physicist at the University of California at Santa Barbara. I am now a Professor and Department Chair in the Department of  Astronomy and Physics at Saint Mary’s University, a Canada Research Chair in Astronomy, and a member of the Institute for Computational Astrophysics.
