I am currently a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellow at the Education and Social Research Institute (MMU), in Manchester, UK. My SSHRC funded Fellowship Future Literacies in Secondary English focuses on QTBIPOC speculative fiction, and youth cultural productions of speculative fiction.

I also co-direct WalkingLab, where I conduct ongoing research on walking methodologies, research-creation, and public pedagogy. My research is informed by cultural studies and the feminist new materialisms, with a particular interest in theories of affect, queer theory, and speculative pragmatism.

I am co-author of Walking Methodologies in More-than-Human World: Walkinglab (Routledge, 2018); co-editor of Pedagogical Matters: New Materialism and Curriculum Studies (Peter Lang, 2016); and author of Searching for Guan Yin (White Pine, 2011).

I am half of the electronic music duo Oblique Curiosities and founding member of Hamilton Perambulatory Unit.
