I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Canada Research Chair on Comparative Aboriginal Condition at Université Laval in Québec City, Canada, and a Fellow with the Polar Research and Policy Initiative (PRPI). Previously, I was a Research Scholar with the Arctic Futures Initiative at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), and I completed my PhD at the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies at Trent University.

A lot about the Arctic interests me, but there are three areas where I have focused my research. First, is the Arctic economy. For my postdoc, I am working on a project analyzing income inequality in the circumpolar Arctic, and for PRPI I have written about trade in the Arctic.

Second, I am interested in security, and border management in particular, in the Canadian North. For my dissertation, I analyzed federal government documents to understand how border management is understood in the North compared to the South, and whether national frameworks are applicable to the North.

Finally, I am interested in regional governance at the circumpolar and state levels, and I think that policy documents are a good read.
