Bio/Research

I am an interdisciplinary scholar trained in medical anthropology, with interests in the areas of global and environmental health, food systems, labour, social justice, citizenship and transnational migration. My research projects have investigated various aspects of migrant workers’ health, rights and well-being, including: access to health care and workers’ compensation; women’s experiences of gender-based violence; occupational, mental, sexual and reproductive health; social determinants of health; and the impacts of separation on migrant families. Although I have conducted research with various migrant groups, I have primarily focused on temporary foreign workers from Mexico and Jamaica who labour in Ontario agriculture. I am co-founder of the Migrant Worker Health Project, www.migrantworkerhealth.ca, which promotes accessible health care for migrant workers. I am currently conducting research on the impacts of autism therapy and education services on family stress and well-being, using a social determinants of health framework.
