I am a full professor in the Facullty of Human and Social Development at the University of Victoria. I trained as a geographer in the US and Canada. I teach undergraduate and graduate courses from from socialist, poststructuralist, and feminist perspectives. My most recent teaching has been in the Social Justice Program.

I have an eclectic set of interests that inform my research and my teaching. I try to sort through the commonplace activities and their messy links to systemic processes. I tend to explore themes of body, power, and subjectivity in various contexts—ill bodies, music, combat veterans, chronic illness, contested illness, myalgic encephalopathy (ME), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - as well as in ways to conduct research and do theory - feminist methodologies, emergent methods, discursive spaces, and autobiographical writing.
