I am a political ecologist with a research interest in the political and social structures associated with development. My research is primarily focused on political ecology, mobility, and policies that regulate natural resource management.

My research work has focused on the policies that regulate our coastal activities, particularly those which have a social, economic, or environmental impacts in the Bay of Fundy, Canada and the South China Sea or Biển Đông Vietnam. I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Cu Lao Cham, Vietnam and worked all across Canada.
