Welcome to my site! I am a postdoctoral researcher at McGill University where I study British imperial histories and experiences of colonialism.
I grew up in Alberta, Canada, on Treaty 7 land and the ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy. I later studied on Vancouver Island, on the unceded territory of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples. And I now live on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations.
My personal experiences of being a settler on these lands has shaped my academic journey, and my research is certainly informed my own entanglement with and observations of ongoing legacies of empire in the settler colonies.
In addition to history, I am also passionate about digital humanities and the various applications of technology for research, teaching, and dissemination, from big data analysis to video games to augmented reality exhibitions.
