I have an eclectic range of research interests. Currently, I have two key areas that I am actively studying.

First, I study animals. Through a sociological perspective, I am interested in the ways in which animals relate to humanity and the consequences and harms involved, for both. A key area I am focusing in involves the intersection of animal and interpersonal abuse, working with the Animal and Interpersonal Abuse Research Group (AIPARG) at the University of Windsor.

Second, I study food. Whether it's using a criminal, harm-based, ethical, or pragmatic perspective, I am interested in applying a critical sociological-criminological lens on foodstuffs and food processes. Essentially I am seeking to problematize current neoliberalized food industries and consumption cultures, founded in an understanding of food as the most significant nexus between what is 'the social' and what is 'nature'.
