Bio/Research

I am an associate professor who primarily teaches in the Health Studies program at the Brantford campus. I received my PhD from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto in 2009 and my MA in Performance Studies from New York University in 2002.

My work is highly interdisciplinary: I fuse critical theoretical scholarship in health with arts-based practices, including theatre and fiction. In particular I am interested in critical theories of the body, disability studies, public health, the social determinants of health and theatre and performance studies.

My current research involves the use of art to facilitate storytelling with people who have intellectual disabilities who have survived institutionalization. This project, entitled Recounting Huronia, is supported by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant. Other recent projects include the creation of a research-based play that uses ethics to make sense of pandemic planning and response (supported by the Canadian Program of Research on Ethics in a Pandemic). I am also the co-creator of The Last Straw: A Board Game about the Social Determinants of Health.
