Welcome to my site! I am a PhD researcher at University College London, 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, and I later studied on Vancouver Island, on the unceded territory of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples.
My personal experiences of being a settler on these lands has shaped my academic journey, and while I do not consider my research to be “activist” in nature, it is certainly informed by 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.
