I received my PhD (2005) and MA (1999) in Political Science from York University, and my BSc (1998) in Geography and Political Science from the University of Victoria.
My research is focused in the field of political ecology, with particular interests related to ecological citizenship and environmental justice, indigenous rights and natural resources, sustainable local economies, and environmental policy.
Geographically my research is conducted in two regions: Latin America, with particular focus on Chile, and Canada's North, with my current work being done in the Northwest Territories. As coordinator of a thematic area on water and megaprojects within the WATERLAT network, I have worked broadly on water politics in Latin America, especially in relation to hydroelectricity and mining.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the field of political ecology, especially those interested in environmental citizenship, environmental justice, water, indigenous peoples, and sustainable local economies. I am always especially interested in working with students who have a Latin American dimension to their research. Funding possibilities for graduate students, along with opportunities to be involved in my research, vary over time.
