Krystle Shore is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology & Legal Studies at the University of Waterloo. Her research interests lie at the intersection of policing, surveillance technologies, and public health interests, and include critically examining the narratives supporting surveillance as a solution to various social problems (e.g., the use of body-worn cameras to reduce police violence).

Krystle’s dissertation research explores the obscuring of public health and traditional security-based surveillance practices, and how such practices relate to broader trends in power and governance. For this research she is specifically examining the deployment of electronic location monitoring devices by police to track people who have cognitive impairments.

Krystle is also interested in the social forces at play within various trends in academia, such as the contemporary push for interdisciplinary research collaboration and knowledge mobilization.
