Dissertation Topic

Krystle's dissertation research explores the obscuring of protective and security-based surveillance practices and how these practices relate to broader trends in power and governance. She is specifically examining the deployment of wearable location tracking technology by police in order to track people who have cognitive impairments.

Research area

Krystle's research interests broadly concern the fields of policing and surveillance, and more specifically include critically examining the use of police surveillance technologies (e.g., police body-worn cameras, wearable location tracking devices). Krystle is also interested in the hegemonic and counter-hegemonic dimensions of various trends within academia, such as the contemporary push for research collaboration and knowledge mobilization.
