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 (Tier 2) in Biogovernance, Law and Society at the University of Waterloo, where I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Legal Studies, a fellow of the Balsillie School of International Affairs, and a member of the Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute. I am also an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) fellow and Associate Professor at RegNet, the School of Regulation and Global Governance at the Australian National University, and Co-Chair of the Law and Society Association Collaborative Research Network on Ethnography, Law and Society.
My research examines intersections between inequality, social control, and technoscience, with a focus on how they contribute to understandings of human bodies and the ways they are governed. My publications span topics related to biometric surveillance, practices of policing, and the regulation of human enhancement and physical well-being. My teaching reflects this range: I have taught courses on crime, law, and society; race, class, gender, and sexuality; social theory; sociology of sport; and surveillance.
