I am a human geographer broadly interested in geographies of exclusion and inclusion.
I approach my work from the vantage point of three interrelated themes: space, knowledge and power. To conceptualize these themes and how they relate, I draw upon a variety of theoretical frameworks including governmentality theory, actor-network theory, and assemblage theory.
I utilize various methodological approaches and techniques in my work including discourse analysis, in-depth interviewing, participant observation, arts-based inquiry, and participatory action research.
I am a graduate student pursuing an MA in Human Geography at the University of Alberta. I have a BSc in Earth and Atmospheric Science from the University of Alberta, where I developed an interest in spatial data. My research will involve spatially examining data-driven governance in Edmonton by looking at the relations of discourses, infrastructures and practices involved urban data use.
