Bio/Research

Through my practice as a social worker, researcher, community organizer and educator, I have followed my passion for social justice. I strive to use the perspectives of structural social work and health equity in my teaching and in my research on policy and social change.

My primary research aim is to critique political and social structures that impact social policy and communities through a political economy analysis. My current research examines the intersection of policies and programs that address LGBTQ+ health equity. I am particularly interested in how social movements influence health equity and policy development. I have also contributed to the development of Queer Liberation Theory, an emerging framework. My focus is understanding class dimensions of LGBTQ+ oppression and how Queer Liberation Theory can support and empower the queer movement.

My previous research examined educational supports and services for postsecondary students with learning disabilities, explored Indigenous and northern experiences with health and social services, analyzed controversies within Ontario’s sex education curriculum, and developed historical perspectives on the gay/queer liberation movement.

My plans for future research include further research into issues faced by postsecondary students with disabilities and a social analysis of the labour movement.
