PhD | SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow, City, University of London
I am a critical disability studies scholar who draws on feminist new materialism to examine disabled and mad students' experiences in higher education. My scholarly contributions lie at the theoretical and pedagogical intersections of disability, mad, and fat studies and include socio-historical examinations that surface the interconnections of colonialism, racism, ableism, sanism, and queer- and transphobia. I have published scholarly articles on disability-related issues in higher education, on Canadian disability history, and on community-based learning. Currently, a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at City, University of London, my research examines the links between colonialism and distress among international students. I conduct this research diversely-positioned as a disabled, fat, POC, immigrant and settler who is living, working and creating on the ancestral and traditional territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Huron-Wendat.
