Graduate Advisor: Daniel Goldstein

My research concerns oil sands mining in northern Alberta, Canada. Oil sands mining is a unique form of resource extraction, with a host of special issues relating to migrant labor, First Nations communities, and the North American landscape. I am particularly interested in the discursive and ontological legitimization of extractive industries, especially within the context of a European settler state like Canada.

Research Interests: Actor Network Theory, Biopolitics, Environmental Anthropology, Environmental Justice, Ethics, Extractive Industries, Feminist Theory, Gender, Indigenous Studies, Labor Migration, Landscape, Phenomenology, Politics of Knowledge Production, Social Justice, Queer Theory, Sovereignty, State Formation
