I hold the Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Biogovernance, Law and Society at the University of Waterloo, where I direct the Law and Society Emerging Research (LaSER) Lab. In 2020, I begin a five-year term as Director of RegNet, the School of Regulation and Global Governance at the Australian National University. With Allison Fish, I convene the Law and Society Association Collaborative Research Network on Ethnography, Law and Society.
As an interdisciplinary scholar interested in biogovernance, I study how science and technology contribute to the governance of populations and individual humans. My research examines intersections between inequality, social control, and technoscience in everyday life. My publications span topics related to biometric surveillance, regulatory science, technologies of policing, and the regulation of human enhancement and well-being. My teaching reflects this range: I have taught courses on crime and deviance, law and regulation, popular culture, social theory, sport and physical activity, and surveillance.
