I have been in the field of education for more than two decades, cultivating my love for Philosophy, Education, Pragmatism and Behaviourism. My main area of specialization and interest is under the umbrella of Social Justice Education (PhD, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto). I am a member of the Institute of Equality and Diversity Professionals, a group of professionals who advance DEI through research, scholarship and advocacy (MIEDP, United Kingdom), on a global scale. I am also a Certified Diversity Professional and Executive (CDP® & CDE®, Institute for Diversity Certification/Society for Diversity, United States), with demonstrated mastery of equity, diversity and inclusion skills, has excellence in leadership in D&I, and able to manage or oversee large scale and complex equity, diversity and inclusion efforts. I am very much interested in the discourse on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in various social settings, and applying an anti-oppressive lens and framework. Some personal and professional joint advocacies that I have engaged with over the last decade, have set precedent cases to create significant change on some aspects of education and social services. Since 2016, I have been appointed as a voting member of ARCH Disability Law Centre (Ontario, Canada). I also partake as a member of Special Education Appeal Board (SEAB), on an ad hoc basis and in support of Ontario families. I am also an Editorial Board Member of the International Journal of Education, Culture and Society, a platform where I support the academic publications of research about Education, diverse cultures and societies.
In 2011, I had my initial training in Behaviour Analysis from the Institute of Child Education and Psychology (ICEP Ireland), and from then on, pursued Behaviour Analysis as a Verified Course Sequence at the Florida Institute of Technology. I had an initial interest, competence and training in Behaviour Analysis in Education. As part of my advocacy, I created a platform for free resources for learners, parents and families, educators and behaviour analysts, for use in Behaviour Analysis in Education, to promote effective teaching and inclusive learning for diverse learners.
Since 2019, I began to focus on Organizational Behaviour Management (OBM) and gained more training for competence in OBM, from the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT OBM Certificate and OBM Specialist Certificate), Aubrey Daniels International (ADI) and OBM Dynamics, in Utrecht, the Netherlands. With my trainings in OBM, I want to help and support professionals in the human services, by applying the science and principles of contextual behavioural science in workplaces. I am accredited by APMG International (United Kingdom) as a trainer of Organizational Behaviour Management Foundations. I am also an ICAgile Certified Coach and Mentor.
Some of the organizations I have previously worked with and worked for in the areas of education, teaching and training and research are: The Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), University at Buffalo State University of New York (SUNY system), and the University of Toronto Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). Currently, I am teaching Education and Behavioural Science courses in post-secondary and tertiary settings, and training and coaching professionals in various fields and industry settings using the tools of Organizational Behaviour Management, particularly in contextually functional scientific Performance Management (PM), Agile Methodology and DEI strategies.
