My current research critiques human rights narratives present in Canadian museums in relation to a growing global network of human rights oriented museums. My broader research expertise include contemporary art, museum/curatorial theory, human rights, difficult knowledge, and memory studies. I’ve undertaken fieldwork at a number of museums in Canada and abroad including Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial, POLIN museum, and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. I’ve also held several research and curatorial positions in London, Ontario where I recently completed my BA and MA in Art History at Western University.
