I am an assistant professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Carleton University where I teach environmental studies and planning courses.
My research focuses on the politics of intimate environments and takes many loops and turns through questions around immigration, incorporation, citizenship and place, and environmental justice and urban health.
I try to use the right tools for the job, which might mean engaging with maps or stories, objects or numbers. The job, ps-by-the-way, being deepening understandings and supporting increased social justice.
Right now I’m trying to understand imbricated citizenship narratives and experiences on the Prairies, and diverse residential landscape practices in California, and thinking more and more about sound as a spatial method.
