BA (University of Windsor); MA (University of Windsor); PhD (York University); Postdoctoral Fellow (York University, CHSRF/CIHR)
After attaining a BA and MA in Sociology from the University of Windsor, I continued my doctoral studies in Sociology at York University. I joined Wilfrid Laurier in 2011 after spending some time as a postdoctoral fellow with the CHSRF/CIHR Chair of Health Services Research at York University. More recently I have been a Visiting PECAN Fellow at the Research Centre for Law, Gender and Sexuality at the University of Kent (Canterbury, UK) and a Visiting Research Fellow at PEALS at Newcastle University (Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK) and the International Institute for the Sociology of Law (Oñati, Spain). My research and teaching interests are in the areas of global governance and development, legal and moral regulation, gender and sexuality, and inequality and justice.
