Associate Professor of Geography, University of Guelph

I hold a PhD in Geography from Clark University in the US and am currently an Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Guelph in Canada. My research interogates 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 coordinate the 'Conservation as Reconciliation Partnership', a network of Indigenous nations and leaders, conservation organizations and academics dedicated to supporting Indigenous-led conservation in Canada. I am also an active member of the Society of Conservation Biology and an Associate Editor for the journal Biological Conservation.
