Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Western University

I am a cultural anthropologist who studies crisis, disaster, and trauma from the standpoint of moral experience. My work focuses on how people make sense of exceptional events and on the ethical and political relationships that emerge in and around responses to crisis. My geographic area of expertise is the Caribbean, specifically Haiti, where I have worked for about fifteen years.
