I am a social scientist who thrives by practicing intellectual promiscuity. I am concerned about structurally arising inequalities. My research agenda contributes to scholarship on resistance to the state, social justice, and the politics of knowledge production. I draw from feminist praxis, collective action, and engaged pedagogy. I explore bureaucratic practices about people experiencing marginality, asking: how are these forms of knowledge produced and sustained? I use institutional ethnography and listen ‘organizationally’ for how policy, law and regulation manifest. I have worked in Canada, the Horn of Africa and the Middle East. I serve on the editorial boards of Refuge: Canada’s Journal on Refugees, and Women’s Health and Urban Life. Je suis bilingue en français et anglais.
