My work falls within the subdiscipline of medical anthropology, and my research interests lie in the areas of Aboriginal health and well-being, healthcare systems, policy, and the body. My doctoral project takes the form of an institutional ethnography, and explores how Aboriginal medical citizen-subjects are constructed through provincial health promotion programs. I am also deeply invested in the issues of poverty and homelessness within Canada, and have held service and research positions in several Aboriginal-focused organizations that address these topics. Most recently, I held a graduate assistantship with the York University-based Canadian Homelessness Research Network.
