He completed an M.A. and Ph.D. in Sport Psychology at Queen’s University and was fortunate to receive a graduate scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for his doctoral studies. Dany’s research career started during his undergraduate studies at Bishop’s with the publication of his first article, and he continued to engage in research activities throughout his graduate studies. This ultimately led him to receive the National Society’s Young Scientist Award, which is given to one student in Canada who has demonstrated significant productivity during their formative years. In 2010, Dany became the first faculty member in the newly formed Kinesiology program at University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI). Today, his research focuses on positive youth development through sport, which aims to ensure that young people participating in sports have positive experiences. He is currently working on multiple grant-funded research projects with colleagues across Canada and with one of his collaborators in Portugal. UPEI recently recognized his research abilities by presenting him with an Award of Merit for Scholarly Activities. Dany is engaged in teaching and service activities at his institution where he has received numerous teaching awards and acted as Department Chair from 2017–2021.
