Associate Professor, Criminology and Criminal Justice, Carleton University

My research examines the intersections between sexuality, technology, representation, the body and law. I have published scholarly articles and legal reports on topics such as: sex robots; teenage sexting and child pornography; non-consensual Intimate Image distribution; ‘self-exploitation’; queer pornography; (self)surveillance; pregnant men and trans human rights. I approach these topics empirically and theoretically and employ a post/intersectional lens. I have also served as an expert consultant for national and international committees (Law Reform Committee of the Parliament of Victoria, Australia; House of Commons’ Standing Committee on the Status of Women; Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs), as well as for legal cases and sentencing decisions regarding the application of child pornography laws.
