Associate Professor, Department of Indigenous Studies, Simon Fraser University

I am an interdisciplinary scholar-artist who studies the relationships between Indigenous sovereignty and freshwater fish futures. I am a co-founder of the Institute for Freshwater Fish Futures (2018). I have a BSc in Biological Sciences (University of Alberta, 2006), an MSc in Rural Sociology (University of Alberta, 2010), and a PhD in Social Anthropology (University of Aberdeen, 2017). I was a 2018 Yale Presidential Visiting Fellow in the Program in the History of Science and Medicine, and in 2020 I was named a member of the Royal Society of Canada's College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists. I specialize in transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary examinations of the legal, ethical, and relational perspectives of freshwater fish protection in Canada.
