I hold a PhD in Public Health Sciences from the University of Toronto. My main research interests are in disability and mad studies; Deleuzian and feminist new materialism; post-qualitative and decolonizing methodologies; and the scholarship of teaching and learning. My research has always focused on education – the education we receive within formal institutions – schools, colleges, universities – as well as the education we learn from moving around the world in different bodies – mad, disabled, indigenous, queer, black, fat, etc. I am interested in research the explores how institutions come to understand and constrain bodies of difference and how individuals – alongside other people and things – learn about themselves and start to resist and even create different configurations of what is possible. Currently, I am a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada’s (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellow at City, University of London, researching the tech-based solutions that have emerged in response to international students’ mental health in the UK and globally.
