I am an Assistant Professor in Sociology at Trent University, where my community- engaged research focuses on aging, disability, immigration, precarious work, continuing care systems, and struggles for social transformation. Currently, my central focus is a new SSHRC Partnership Engage Grant, which I lead with Disability Justice Network of Ontario, focused on finding socially just alternatives to residential long-term care. I recently completed a SSHRC Insight Development Grant, which I lead with Migrante Manitoba, exploring the policy landscape and experiences of im/migrant home care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. My writing has been published in diverse venues including Canadian Dimension, Impact Ethics, The Gerontologist, and Antipode.
My teaching brings together equity studies, critical gerontology, disability studies, and community- engaged learning. I guest lecture about disability care politics, community building, and social movement learning at universities across North America.
