I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at the University of British Columbia.  I completed my PhD  in geography at the University of British Columbia in 2016.  My doctoral work examined environmental governance and mining laws in the past and present.  I looked at mineral tenure regimes and the spatiality of mining law, like sub-dividing lands into surface and sub-surface rights, to explain the materiality of how settler colonialism dispossesses.  This coincides with my work on the ways in which temporal and locational shifts in mining regulation and law, particularly concerning property, continue to impact people, places, and landscapes.  My interests are in political ecology, resource geographies, political economy, indigenous studies, environmental politics and law, feminism, colonialism and north-south geographies.
