I am an interdisciplinary scholar and teacher who is interested in how biogovernance—that is, the governance of populations and individual humans through science and technology—informs everyday life.
I hold the Canada Research Chair in Biogovernance, Law and Society at the University of Waterloo, where I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Legal Studies and a fellow of the Balsillie School of International Affairs. I am also an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award fellow and an associate professor at RegNet, the School of Regulation and Global Governance at the Australian National University.
Most of my research focuses on intersections between social control, science, technology, and inequality, examining how they contribute to understandings of human bodies and their regulation. It spans topics related to biometric surveillance, sport and physical culture, drug regulation, injury, and practices of policing.
