My interest in law and legal studies starts from questions of how law, and its limits, are constructed. My research interrogates the limits of legal frameworks by deeply questioning the foundations, and categories, of modern law and legal subjectivity. My research draws on de coloniality and anarchist thought, feminist theories, indigenous research methodologies and post-structuralist approaches to law. Forthcoming publication in the summer 2020: Law, Migration and Precarious Labour: Ecotechnics of the Social, Routledge.
I hold a PhD in Law from the School of Law Birkbeck College, University of London. My LLM was completed at Osgoode Hall Law School. Additionally, I hold an MA in History from York University, Canada and a BA (Hons) from the University of Saskatchewan.
