It is a custom that we academics call the assemblage of people we work with a ‘lab’, though I think it conjures the wrong picture in my case. I work with a wonderful group of junior scholars, and I am proud of what we have done together, and their journeys beyond my lab.

I am generally happy to hear from those interested in working with me. Graduate  student spots are currently full for 2021. This may change as funding announcements occur

Currently, I am working with (supervising or co-supervising) the following people, at Dalhousie unless otherwise mentioned:

  • Keahna Margeson, IDPhD , OGEN fellowship (co-supervised with Patricia Manuel, Planning) 2021-
