My interest in law and legal studies starts from questions of how law, and its limits, are constructed. My research interrogates the limits of legal frameworks by deeply questioning the foundations, and categories, of modern law and legal subjectivity. I do this primarily through studies of labour/employment law, immigration law and national citizenship, and social uprising/ resistance movements. My research draws on de-coloniality and anarchist thought, feminist theories and post-structuralist approaches to law (in particular, the work of Jean-Luc Nancy). I have a great interest in Indigenous research methodologies, and incorporating epistemologies into research methodology and teaching pedagogy. My current research explores the complex idea, and pursuit, of home.
I hold a PhD in Law from the School of Law Birkbeck College, University of London England, generously funded by SSHRC. My LLM was completed at Osgoode Hall Law School. I hold an MA in History from York University, Canada and a BA (Hons) from the University of Saskatchewan.
From 2018-2021, I was an external examiner for the University of Westminster LLB programme in London UK. I am involved with the international Association for the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities, and the Critical Legal Studies conference. I have acted as a peer reviewer for various publications including the Comparative Labour Law & Policy Journal, International Journal of Human Rights, Feminist Legal Studies, Contemporary Political Theory, Oxford University Press, Routledge Law, and Bloomsbury Academic. I regularly present my research at national and international workshops and conferences.
