About

I am an Associate Professor in Legal Studies at Ontario Tech University. I earned a Doctoral degree in Critical Disability Studies at York University, where I studied regulation of reproductive technologies; and a Master’s degree in Philosophy at the University of Guelph, where I studied same-sex marriage and constitutional law.

My research takes up how non-normative bodies are read, marked, and produced in and through socio-legal discourse. I am committed to communities and embodiments that claim the following identifiers: cripped (or disabled, and especially persons deemed intellectually disabled), Mad (persons positioned against and within mental health regimes), fat (bodies framed as obese and discriminated against in the interest of public health), queer and trans (persons who identify as members of LGBTQ+ communities).
