I am a sociologist of health and illness specializing in qualitative methods and the social studies of HIV-related policy and Canadian immigration law. I use the social organization of knowledge approach and institutional ethnography as forms of inquiry. The bulk of my work to date has explored immigration medical inadmissibility decision-making and its consequences. “Screening and Screaming in Exile: Medical Examination and the Immigration Health Work of People with HIV” is the name of my monograph, currently under review with the University of British Columbia Press. Since 2013, I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran and Romania. I supervise and teach students in English and French.
