I'm an associate professor in Social Development Studies and Social Work at Renison University College, University of Waterloo, Canada. My scholarship and teaching focus on queer and trans studies, critical disability studies, social work, feminist research methods, and the history and philosophy of social services. My current research explores several areas: the perspectives of Autistic people on "eloping" or departing suddenly from places; the ways in which different people understand and useĀ "neurodiversity"; and the experiences of diverse parents (particularly 2SLGBTQ+ and/or disability-identified parents) in meeting the care and work responsibilities in their households -- and how policy can best support them.
