I am the Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) 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 also hold an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award at RegNet, the School of Regulation and Global Governance at the Australian National University.
My research interests are concerned with how biogovernance—that is, the governance of populations and individual humans through science and technology—informs everyday life. Most of my work 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 management, and practices of policing.
