My research investigates the social processes that shape the well-being of historically marginalized communities and the strategies, alliances, policies and practices that can bring about more just and sustainable societies. I am currently engaged in three major projects:
- Canada at the Crossroads is a forthcoming book about Indigenous-settler relations in Northwestern Ontario (Treaty 3 Territory).
- Pathways to Solidarity: Building on the above research, I am conducting life-history interviews with settler-Canadians who have participated in Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Idle No More events.
- Action Research on Social Determinants of Health: I am also a collaborator on two CIHR-funded projects concerned with poverty and health in Indigenous communities.
