I hold a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Biogovernance, Law and Society at the University of Waterloo, where I am an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Legal Studies and a fellow of the Balsillie School of International Affairs. I am also a senior fellow at RegNet, the School of Regulation and Global Governance at the Australian National University, where I hold an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award.
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 the interface between technoscience, regulation, and inequality and considers how they contribute to our understandings and perceptions of human bodies. It spans topics related to biometric surveillance, sport and physical culture, drug regulation, injury management, and practices of policing.
