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

There are three areas upon which I have focused my research. First, I am interested in issues related to Arctic economies and socio-economic inequalities. Second, I am interested in security, particularly in the Canadian North. I have written about border management and am interested in comprehensive security and the interconnections between security issues. Third, I am interested in circumpolar governance and how policy documents address key regional issues.
