Professor, Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, University of Guelph

I hold a PhD in Geography from Clark University in the US and am currently a Professor of Geography at the University of Guelph in Canada. My research interrogates the social and political dimensions of conservation policy with a primary interest in how conservation policy shapes livelihood practices of Indigenous communities living in and near protected areas, both in Southeast Asia and North America. I currently co-lead the 'Conservation as Reconciliation Partnership', a network of Indigenous nations and leaders, conservation organizations and academics dedicated to supporting Indigenous-led conservation in Canada.
