I have shared my research with the public via national and international radio and newspaper forums including CBC Radio, Roundhouse Radio, Fairchild Radio, Financial Times, and University Herald.

I act occasionally as a reviewer for journals including American Journal of Sociology, American Sociological ReviewUrban Studies, City & Community, Sociology of Education, International Journal of Comparative Sociology, Sociological Forum, Frontiers Psychology, International Political Science Review, Asian Journal of Comparative Politics, Chinese Journal of Communication; Social & Cultural Geography, Journal of Contemporary China, and Canadian Review of Sociology.
